Panda Recycling set to include Smart Planet’s reCUP for collections

Panda Recycling is to include paper products using Smart Planet Technologies’ EarthCoating, including the reCUP recyclable cup, into its existing UK and Ireland recycling operations.

The major Irish recycling company said once collections begin, 100% of the recovered cup stock will be diverted from landfill and delivered to paper mills to be reprocessed into new paper items.

In 2016 the Panda Group acquired New Earth Solutions’ five waste treatment sites at Avonmouth near Bristol, Canford in Dorset and Cotesbach in Leicestershire, as well as Blaise in Kent and Sharpness in Gloucestershire.

The following year it bought Widnes-based waste management company WSR Recycling.

Smart Planet Technologies markets its reCUP – using EarthCoating – as a universal paper board recycling solution that does not require new investment or modification of existing recycling equipment.

ReCup

EarthCoating is a technology that makes paper cup recycling possible in the regular card and paper recycling stream.

The technology can also be applied to coated paper board applications including sandwich wedges, ice-cream and noodle pots and any other food contact applications.

Paper cups made with EarthCoating are available under the reCUP and Vericup brands for order throughout the UK.

Des Crinion, managing director of Irish Packaging Recycling, the commodities trading arm of the Panda Group, said: “We love the idea of coffee cups going directly back into the recycling loop without extra processing or segregation. By supplying the board manufacturers with the recyclable material that we will collect nationwide, this is closed-loop recycling and the circular economy working as it should in a real-world situation.”

Will Lorenzi, president of Smart Planet Technologies, told Packaging News: “We’re thrilled that Panda will be incorporating reCUP into their recovered paper stream. With a change to the coating in coated paperboards such as paper cups, reCUP and EarthCoating provide the recycling industry with materials designed to be recycled easily through traditional paper recycling processing. These materials can therefore be incorporated as commodities in the recovered paper markets, instead of segregated for landfill.”
