Events Coffee Cup Recycling

9:00am - 5:00pm

Little things make a BIG difference!

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 five 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 near Black Tonic
• Woolworths Quadrant between Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses and Muffin Break
• Big W Quadrant 
• Target Quadrant

Since the Simply Cups recycling program began in April 2017, over 6 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.

Let's do out bit and we look forward to providing positive updates in the future.
