Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Recyclable cups made from recycled paper

Forecourts are being encouraged to offer hot beverages in environmentally friendly recyclable cups.

Frugalpac, which claims to manufacture the first fully recyclable coffee cup made from recycled paper, has opened a new manufacturing facility in Wrexham, north Wales, to produce Frugal Cups.

Frugal Cups will be available in three sizes 8oz, 12oz and 16oz in four Frugalpac-branded styles as well as in bespoke designs.

The cups are made from recycled paperboard, with no waterproofing chemicals and, according to Frugalpac, their food-grade liner separates easily during the standard recycling process.

The paperboard and liner can then be recycled through separate streams which means that the cup can be disposed of in any recycling bin.

Malcolm Waugh, CEO of Frugalpac, commented: "Our aim is to be the number one replacement for all the coffee cups in the market today which are difficult to recycle and made from virgin paper board. We encourage consumers to ask their local coffee shops to #getFrugal!
