James Cropper are proud to have partnered with Forge Waste and Recycling and environmental charity Hubbub as part of the #LeedsByExample campaign. The campaign aims to improve 'on the go' recycling infrastructure for coffee cups in the Leeds/Yorkshire area.
Forge Waste and Recycling have already introduced recycling schemes for plastic and cans in Leeds and the next step in their campaign was the disposal of used paper cups. They have collected almost 200,000 cups in just 3 months from work places, coffee shops, universities, shopping centres and on the street cup bins.
The first delivery of cups from Forge has been received by James Cropper and was captured on film by BBC North West Tonight Chief Reporter, Dave Guest.
