Help save millions of cups from

landfill at your school

Over 1 billion cups end up in landfill each year because they’re lined with plastic and need to be processed separately to be recycled. Through the 7-Eleven Cup Rescue Schools Program you can get the tools you need to successfully divert cups from landfill at your school.

Participating is easy!

  1. Simply Cups and 7-Eleven will donate up to 3x Cup + Lid collection units to your school.

  2. Simply set up your collection units in your school’s staff room, Year 12 common room, and in visible locations across the school grounds. Encourage staff and students to correctly stack used cups into your cup collection units. 

  3. Once the units become full, you will need to tie off the inner sleeve, store your cups in a suitable location, and deliver them to your local partnering 7-Eleven store.  From there, the cups will then be collected from 7-Eleven and diverted from landfill!
