    Recycling of cardboard cups:

      CUPSZ helps companies collect and recycle cardboard cups in the Netherlands! The cups are collected via special collection bins and picked up from you. The recycling process then begins, in which the plastic coating is separated from the paper fibres, and the cardboard and plastic can be reused for various applications. We also help you with your registration with ILT and the administration thereof.
