Simply Cups recycling scheme launches at David Ross Sports Village

January 28th, 2019

The Club House at David Ross Sports Village (DRSV) is becoming the first place on University Park able to collect disposable hot drink cups to recycle.

The process of recycling single-use hot drink cups is typically hard to achieve in part due to difficulties separating the paper outer and plastic lining of the cup. (Find out more on our WasteNott FAQs.) However, the launch of the Simply Cups scheme at DRSV’s Club House will enable the recycling of single-use cups disposed of at the dedicated collection point – even if they were purchased elsewhere around the University.

In support of the WasteNott campaign, the Club House café at David Ross Sports Village will be charging an additional 20p per disposable hot drink cup and will continue to offer a 20p reduction for customers who bring their own reusable cup. Hot drinks are also available at the advertised price in china mugs to be enjoyed by customers who chose to sit in.

The 20p additional charge at the Club House café goes directly into funding the Simply Cups recycling scheme. Be sure to place your used coffee cups into the separate bins provided in the Café so your cup can be recycled responsibly!

The Simply Cups scheme at the Club House is being launched at an event on 11.30-1.30pm, Monday 28 January 2019. To celebrate the launch, the UoN sustainability team has joined forced with the Department of Sport, Sodexo, PlayerLayer and Enva (our waste management company) to give away a range of prizes and sustainable products on the day.

Attendees will also be able to take part in games and learn more about initiatives to encourage sustainability at the University of Nottingham, including the WasteNott waste reduction campaign.
