Missing the tram on cold cups

December 10, 2019

In 2017 popular ABC television series War on Waste filled a Melbourne tram with 50,000 coffee cups – demonstrating how many cups are used every 30 minutes in Australia.

Since then a debate about the solution for the difficult to recycle coffee cups has surfaced but seems to have missed covering the same problem in cold drink cups.

According to APCO’s Single-use, Problematic and Unnecessary Plastic Packaging consultation paper, single-use hot and cold cups have been identified as a priority item to be phased out.

However, cold drink cups seem to have slipped under the radar.

Leading the packaging industry in sustainable solutions, we released our RecycleMe™ System to provide a recycling guarantee for hot cups, allowing them to live again as other paper products.

And now we are pleased to launch our new range of RecycleMe™ Cold Cups.

To protect against condensation, cold cups feature the difficult to remove plastic lining on both the inside and outside of the cup - making them doubly hard to recycle. 

Featuring our next generation lining on both the outside and inside of the cup, RecycleMe™ cold cups are certified recyclable to the global PTS 021/97 standard and are guaranteed to be recycled when collected as part of the RecycleMe™ Collection System.

Our stock cup messaging helps consumers understand how they can cut the rubbish, and these cups are also available with custom print.

Update May 2024: Please note that Detpak no longer manufactures RecycleMe cups. However, you can still view the RecycleMe range here
