My name is Gabby, I’m the Programs Manager at Binners’ Project. I work at the Binners’ Project on the business side of things and spend a lot of time tracking our environmental and social impacts.
All that to say - I’m pleased to be sharing the official results of Monday’s Coffee Cup Revolution.
Even though it rained non-stop, we had another record-breaking year!
Here’s the full scoop:
None of this would have been possible without the support of our sponsoring partners - listed below - many of whom support the CCR or the Binners’ Project on an on-going basis. We’re tremendously grateful for their support and look forward to working with them and others to deliver even better results next year, on the fifth anniversary of the event.
Media coverage was as solid as ever with at least 5 news outlets picking up our story.
The Coffee Cup Revolution is yet another example of the hard, thoughtful work binners do year round through our event services and back-of-house sorting.
If you have an event coming up, or have a waste room in your building that is overflowing, incurring fines, or simply not hitting your waste-diversion targets, please contact us to discuss how our environmentally and socially conscious services can work for you.
We’re proud to work with places like Science World, SFU, Vancity, and others to deliver exceptional waste education and management services year-round, and we’d love the chance to show you and your business or building what we are capable of.

Thanks again to all who supported this event through sponsorship, attendance, and by spreading the word - we appreciate your involvement and look forward to championing an even greener, more inclusive city with you again in 2019!
On September 10, 2015, the Coffee Cup Revolution took place for the second consecutive year in Vancouver’s Victory Square, Vancouver.
Over 130 binners collected coffee cups from around the Lower Mainland for a 5-cent refund. Over 31,000 cups were diverted from the landfill.
You’ve seen them hunt for cans, bottles and plastic containers. Now, binners in Downtown Vancouver are on the look-out for coffee cups too. They’ll be turning in used coffee cups for a 5¢ bounty at Victory Square. The pop-up coffee cup depot is expected to redeem up to 40,000 cups from street litter.
