Hannover’s cup deposit system
With the Hannoccino cup, Hannover has Germany’s largest municipal deposit system for reusable cups. The local waste management company designed the cup together with a media agency and encouraged all citizens to adopt it through a successful advertising campaign.
The Hannoccino cup is food safe and dishwasher safe, and is available in two practical sizes, both with matching lids, making it ideal for coffee or tea. Consisting mainly of biopolymers, natural resins, cellulose and natural reinforcing fibres, the cup is biodegradable at the end of its lifecycle, if managed in the appropriate facilities.
The cup is available at more than 180 exchange offices for a 2-euro deposit. Once a customer is finished with the cup, they can return it to the nearest exchange office, be found using the map on their website.
