Over the course of the inquiry, the committee heard that the UK's total annual coffee cup waste (30,000 tonnes) is enough to fill the Royal Albert Hall and estimates suggest that by 2025 more than 3.75 billion disposable cups could be used per year, yet just 0.25 per cent of those now used are recycled.

Britain produces 30,000 tonnes of coffee cup waste each year.
Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said the 5p plastic bag charge is proof that "these levies work".

The committee last month recommended the government introduce a plastic bottle deposit scheme to cut plastic waste and leakage into the oceans.
Other measures recommended by the committee include producers paying more for packaging, and improved labelling so consumers know how best to dispose of their cup.
