Starbucks spearheads £1m initiative to boost paper cup recycling
Grants of up to £100,000 available to increase number of drop-off points and cut waste
The so-called Cup Fund is financed by the 5p paper cup charge or “latte levy” introduced by Starbucks last year in an effort to reduce the overuse and waste of an estimated 2.5bn disposable cups every year.
The new scheme aims to increase the number of drop-off points needed to collect the cups separately and provide clearer communication to help consumers recycle effectively.
The winning bids will be chosen by an independent panel of experts, including the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee and the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management.Read more: The Guardian
