Whether you are providing services at large festivals and events or for smaller corporate groups it is ideal to segregate your waste at source.  If waste is segregated at the source, it is easier to dispose of.  It also saves time, energy and money.  Sturdy Products Ltd who are based in Blessington, Co Wicklow manufacture a range of environmental products that will help you become more environmentally friendly.  One product of interest is the Sturdy Beverage Buddy Recycling Container.

The Sturdy Beverage Buddy Recycling Container is designed to aid the recycling of used plastic pint containers. The system allows all liquids and containers to be collected separately which helps with segregation at source.   The liquid waste can be disposed of in the usual manner and the plastic cups can be recycled.  In Ireland it is estimated that about 120,000 tonnes of plastic waste are produced each year. Plastic cups are non-bio-degradable and take a long time to break down, possibly up to hundreds of years when they are sent to landfill.
