Businesses urged to join cup recycling scheme
BUSINESSES are being urged to sign up to a cup recyling scheme.Â
TheÂ Solent Cup Recycling Project isÂ based on the success of a scheme inÂ GosportÂ that launched in March.Â Â
Businesses are urged to join the scheme as it rolls out across the Solent regionÂ by contacting Simply Cups which isÂ offering promotional dealsÂ toÂ encourage those in the PO and SOÂ postcodes to join the project before the official launch on December 1.Â The project aims to increase the number of used paper cups that are collected, recycled and turned into new functional products.
Project manager Maddie Hickman said: '˜Paper cups can beÂ recycledÂ andÂ weÂ want to encourage businessesÂ to join ourÂ recycling service.
'˜The Gosport scheme has been successful and now we've joined up with PortsmouthÂ CityÂ Council.Â
'˜As an incentive to local businesses, we are offering reduced rates on cup collectionÂ membership as well as discounts onÂ a range ofÂ cupÂ recyclingÂ bins for those who join up beforeÂ December 1.'
