Square Mile Challenge
We want to give coffee cups one more shot!
From 3 April the University (Moorgate campus) will be one of 30 organisations taking part in the Square Mile Challenge. The initiative aims to recover half a million cups within the square mile and recycle them into new products creating a closed-loop solution for the high profile issue of disposable coffee cups.
Simply Cups is the UK’s ONLY collection and recycling service dedicated to turning paper and plastic cups into second-life materials.
We will install coffee cup recycling bins across Moorgate building and divert paper coffee cups into a new waste stream.
We will replace all dual bin posters with new signage - 'No paper cups' and encourage everyone to put their hot drink cups in a new waste stream.
