reCUP coffee cup achieves certification for Green Dot recyclability

Smart Planet Technologies’ reCUP coffee cup has been recognised as fully recyclable by The Green Dot (Der Grune Punkt) recycling standards. 

The Green Dot Certification recognizes paper cups with EarthCoating to be fully recyclable within the “uncoated paper” classification, therefore paper cups with EarthCoating can be recycled into new recycled paper products – insists Smart Planet.

The certification recognises standards for recyclability claims in 31 countries including the UK and Ireland. This certification for paper cups with EarthCoating is compliant with the Packaging Recovery Organization Europe “PRO” program per EU Directive 94/62.

The double-wall reCUP features 90% fibre recovery, classification in uncoated paper grades, certified as recyclable, qualified for baling along with uncoated paperboards (office paper grade and standard OCC), and qualified for collection in municipal mixed paper bales.

“EarthCoating has enabled a new direction in the recycling of paperboard foodservice packaging” said Chris Tilton, chief materials technology officer at Smart Planet.

“Paperboard packaging with EarthCoating is engineered for recycling and valuable to recyclers to collect and recycle, while achieving the required levels of packaging performance combined. The certification demonstrates the ability to take immediate steps to solve the problem, using today’s UK recycling infrastructure.”
