Coffee Cups Recycling

DS Smith is offering businesses of all types and sizes in the UK the chance to recycle its takeaway coffee cups with our Coffee Cup Drop Box.

Made from 100% recycled materials, our innovative Coffee Cup Drop Boxes can hold up to 700 used cups. Once full, we will collect the boxes in conjunction with Royal Mail Relay and take it to our paper mill for recycling, providing an all-inclusive service offering for collection of your used coffee cups.

This sustainable solution is available to businesses of all types and sizes across the UK. Retailers, factories, offices and public transport hubs can take advantage of our Coffee Cup Drop Boxes, which are now available to buy online through DS Smith’s ePack shop.

Drop boxes retail at £15 each, which includes cost of delivery and collection when full. There is a minimum order of six boxes and a minimum collection of two boxes.
