The Rubbish Project works with Huhtamaki to supply recycled cups, and deliver circular economy solutions to events in the UK, Benelux and Germany, enabling them to transform cups back into products in a closed loop.
Our system of working adapts depending on the client, as we offer a very customised service to events. These three steps cover the core route of working together, and apply to most events.
Before the event starts, we will set you up with a dashboard, and ask for any data we can use to start building your tracker. From here, you can go through the collection guide to develop the collection systems you will adopt on site. We will contact you to discuss the capture methods and guide you through the process. We will also connect and reach out to your existing waste manager to check if we already work with them or if we need to develop a new relationship.
During your event, we will be in regular contact with all parties to ensure cup collection runs smoothly. For large events a member of The Rubbish Project team will be provided to manage the process in person. If working with your waste manager we will not be required to collect material, however if we cannot achieve traceability with the existing waste manager we will have to collect the material with our logistics partner following the event.
Following the event, you must provide us with the required data in the dashboard (Cup quantities and types used on site). Once your material is sorted and contaminants have been removed, your tracker will be updated to display your complete event data including a figure for total cups collected. Throughout the year we will continue to update the tracker as your material is transformed back into products.
