Single-use cups are one of the most significant contributors to environmental pollution, millions of them are used daily in coffee shops and office break rooms, ending up in overflowing landfills. 

In the UK, 7 million disposable cups are used and thrown away daily. 

The Unisort Cup Collector is an innovative solution to help tackle this issue. 


The Impact of Single-Use Cups on the Environment 

Single-use cups have a massive impact on the environment. These cups are mainly made of paper, plastic, or polystyrene foam, which causes a heavy toll on natural resources during production.  

Their disposal is also a significant issue. Though many of these cups are supposed to be recycled, most end up in landfills due to incorrect disposal and the need for proper recycling facilities and lack of awareness. 

Using single-use cups can also contribute to plastic pollution. When these cups are thrown away, they often end up in waterways and eventually break down into microplastics, which can have severe consequences for marine life and ecosystems.  

Finally, the manufacturing, transportation, and disposal of these cups require a significant amount of energy and resources, further worsening their environmental impact. 


The Unisort Cup Collector 

Unisan has developed an innovative solution to address the pressing issue of single-use cup waste – the Unisort Cup Collector. These innovative cup recycling bins are designed to simplify the collection and recycling of single-use cups, significantly reducing their environmental impact.  

The compact and efficient Unisort Cup Collector system encourages responsible cup disposal. It features multiple compartments for segregating cups by material type, ensuring they can be properly recycled. Whether paper or plastic cups, the Unisort Cup Collector accommodates them all, making the recycling process seamless and hassle-free.
