The UK disposes of 7 million single-use coffee cups every day and, although disposable coffee cups are technically recyclable, only 1% of all cups are recycled. This is due to the complicated way that single-use coffee cups are produced, lined with polyethylene plastic to waterproof the item. There are only three recycling plants in the UK that are able to recycle single-use coffee cups.
