Its the circular economy in action. See how it works below!
The Rubbish Cup is manufactured using only recycled plastic and is sold alongside a closed loop system which ensures the cups are recycled back into cups. The Rubbish Cup offers a low carbon and low waste solution to events, which is cost effective and easy to implement.
We believe in the circular economy, which is why we offer collection services alongside our cups. We aim to capture all of the used cups and any other PET waste, and recycle them into cups again using our fully closed loop system.
There are a wide range of methods available when it comes to collecting used cups at your event. We will work with you to find the option which suits best.
The Rubbish Project provides an onsite waste collection service, gathering up the used cups. We can achieve the best rate of capture, and provide all the infrastructure required.
The existing waste contractor manages collection, we will buy back all cups which have been collected and any other PET waste. This material will be used to make new cups. We will provide advice on the best collection methods which you can implement.
The existing waste contractor manages collection, we will buy back the equivalent cup weight in PET waste (plastic bottles) and use this material to make new cups. We can provide advice on the best collection methods which you can implement.
We work within the principles of a circular economy, and have adopted a variety of material tracking methods. It’s possible to gather vast amounts of data that can be used to derive valuable insights which support recycling efficiency improvements and much more.
Working with independent researchers, we have compared the carbon footprint of our cup with common alternatives on the market. We developed The Rubbish Cup with the goal of achieving the lowest carbon footprint possible, see how we did it in our carbon comparison.
