Coffee Cups Station

In Australia the majority of us start the morning with a coffee. It’s a habit many of us love, including the addicted team at Source Separation Systems, however the downside to our addiction is approximately three billion takeaway coffee cups, which are placed in bins across the country annually, often contaminating recycling streams.

Product Description

The highly visible, fun Coffee Cup Separation Station has been designed to address the litter risks associated with this waste, and ensure lids, cups and liquid are all cleanly separated into individual streams, making it easier to recycle more components, if the technology is available.

The Coffee Cup Separation Station was initially designed as an eye catching installation, to improve community awareness around single use takeaway coffee cups. When placed alongside busy recycling stations in public areas such as coffee shops, in busy shopping precincts, building foyers and at lift lobbies, it’s a great way to limit the possibility of the dreaded take away coffee cup ending up as contamination in traditional recycling streams, and increase the opportunity for recycling.

Internally, the Coffee Cup Separation Station features a fully sealed base which minimises the risk of any spills, an important consideration in public places. An internal frame, hides two 80 Litre Compost-A-Pak liners, which are completely plastic free and Australian Certified Compostable (AS4736), one for the lid stream and one for the cups.

There is also a 7 litre Kitchen Caddy in the frame to capture any excess liquid. Convenient to use, the lid simply lifts off for cleaning or access, and the liners and Kitchen Caddy can then be completely removed with the collected lids, cups and liquid. After transportation, the liners can be thrown in with food waste for composting, making this unit even more sustainable.
