Leafield Environmental, a Wiltshire based company are proud to have designed and manufactured 100 new cup bins for Bristols For Cups Sake coffee cup recycling campaign launched in January 2020.
Leafields Envirocup Grande Cup Bins will recycle single used coffee cups in Bristol with the aim of recycling up to four million coffee cups in the first year alone.
The cup bins will be placed along key commuter routes throughout central Bristol and in shopping areas such as The Mall Cribbs Causeway, The Galleries and Cabot Circus.
Bristol Waste Company was awarded the funding for this project through leading environmental charity, Hubbub, who launched The Cup Fund in 2019.
Leafield launched the Envirocup Grande Cup Bin as part of Hubbubs #LeedsByExample coffee cup recycling campaign in 2018.
Its distinctive coffee cup shape was designed for quick identification in high footfall areas. Bespoke labelling and graphics were used on the cup bins for the For Cups Sake campaign. The black coffee style lid is made from 100% recycled plastic.
Philip Maddox, Managing Director at Leafield Environmental said: ‘We understand the growing need to recycle single used coffee cups on the go and in office and foodservice environments.
‘Thats why we launched the Envirocup Grande Cup Bin, a unique coffee cup-shaped bin for people to recycle used coffee cups easily.
‘It was designed and manufactured by our in-house team in Wiltshire and launched with Hubbub as part of their #LeedsByExample coffee cup recycling campaign. Following its success, we are delighted that more cities like Bristol are using our distinctive cup to increase coffee cup recycling.’
The Envirocup Grande Cup Bin collects cups through its six circle apertures and lids through a designated aperture.
Everything is clearly labelled for ease of use.
The empty coffee cups are stacked inside collection tubes for easy emptying and cleaning. Any excess liquids can be emptied into the removable central integral 7.5 liquid reservoir.
The standard colour of the body is bright orange, but bespoke colour and graphics are available upon request.
All graphics are moulded in during the manufacturing process to minimise dirt traps. Leafield has a range of cup recycling bins in various sizes. The Envirobank Cup Bin was also launched as part of the #LeedsByExample campaign to collect high volumes of empty coffee cups.
