That feel good vibe

Australians use approximately 1 billion disposable coffee cups each year. While reusable cups are growing in popularity, many people still prefer the convenience of a takeaway cup.

To help combat this growing waste problem, Craigieburn Central has partnered with Simply Cups, Australia's first coffee cup recycling program and have introduced four dedicated Coffee Cup Recycling Bins throughout the centre for our retailers and customers to support this war on waste and help make a positive difference to the environment.

The four new recycling bins can be located in the following areas;

• Coles Quadrant, next to Linden's Butcher
• Woolworths Quadrant, next to Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses
• Target Quadrant, next to City Chic
• Big W Quadrant, next to Bonds

Since the Simply Cups recycling program began in Australia in April 2017, over 10 million cups have been diverted from landfill Nationally with this tally growing on a daily basis. Instead, Simply Cups have worked with innovators to transform the disposable cups into new products, including building materials, garden beds, bench seats and kerbing with more exciting product ranges to be announced in the coming months.

The Craigieburn Central community have embraced this initiative in a phenomenal manner. Let's keep up the great work and we look forward to providing positive updates in the future.
