The Paper Cup Recovery and Recycling Group (PCRRG) exists to help develop recycling opportunities for paper cups and transform used paper cups into a valuable resource.
Paper cups can provide high quality material to the market place. We want to ensure that it is captured effectively for use in the paper supply chain.
The PCRRG is made up of pioneering organisations from across the paper cup supply chain, including: paper cup manufacturers, retailers, recycling and waste management companies and paper reprocessers.
The paper cup supply chain
There is no one answer for what a paper cup supply chain might look like, but below we provide an example of what it could look like. This example of a supply chain is for either a dedicated used paper cup collection or paper cups collected through a dry mixed recycling service.
