MP Sarah Champion backs new recycling scheme

MP SARAH Champion MP has welcomed a new recycling scheme for paper cups.

The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE UK) and Rotherham Borough Council have teamed up to kick off the scheme, which includes new recycling banks for used cups at recycling points around town.

Cups are made from similar materials to food and drink cartons and will be recycled using the same process at ACE UK’s recycling facility in Halifax.

Mr Champion said: “I’m delighted to support this new scheme to recycle coffee cups though council waste collections, creating a market for second-life recyclable material and preventing unnecessary landfill. 

“I hope we will all take full advantage of this new service.”
