Valorization of plastic cups

4 billion of plastic cups are thrown each year in France. For instance, drink dispensers generate in average 30,000 plastic cups per year for 100 employees. This garbage is voluminous, rarely reused, and triggers treatment costs that are higher and higher.

By implementing a selective collection with Gecco, your plastic cups will be grinded and transformed into polystyrene or polyethylene granules. They will become new raw materials used in the plastic industry for injection, extrusion or 3D printing. You will thus help to reduce the consumption of non-renewable materials and to create jobs in France!

Are plastic cups concerned by the ban on disposable dishes by up to 2020?

No, cups of warm or cold drinking (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soups…) supplied by automatic drink dispensers, but also professional coffee machines and water fountain are not concerned by the measure.

In fact, the article 73 of the law related to the energetic transition for Green Growth mentions that “At the latest at January 1 st of 2020, it will be putted a stop to the supply of disposable plastic cups, glass and plates for kitchen table, except those which can be turned into domestic compost and which are composed, for all or part, by organic materials”. Thus, plastic cups distributed in professional offices are not submitted to the law, as well as the Ecologic and Solidarity-based Transition Minister added in his questions and answers document (question 6).
