Panda Recycling to incorporate paper packaging with Earthcoating® in Ireland and UK recycling operations


Panda recycling announces plans to incorporate collection of paper packaging with Smart Planet Technologies’ EarthCoating® into Ireland and U.K. recycling operations.

February 22, 2018 — Once collection begins, 100% of the recovered cup stock and foodservice packaging will be diverted from landfill and delivered to paper mills to make new paper.

EarthCoating® is a mineralized resin barrier coating that makes paper cup and foodservice recycling possible.

EarthCoating® is a universal recycling solution that does not require new capital investment or modification of existing recycling equipment. Paper cups made with EarthCoating® are currently available under the reCUP™ and Vericup™ brands for orders throughout the U.K. and Ireland.
