"The government should set a target for all disposable coffee cups to be recycled by 2023".
At least 2.5 billion disposable cups are thrown away every year.
Coffee chains have been "pulling the wool over the eyes" of customers by letting them believe paper cups can be recycled, MPs warned.
Some 30,000 tonnes of waste is produced from coffee cups in the United Kingdom every year.
A 5p charge on coffee cups was first proposed by the Liberal Democrats after it emerged a year ago that only one in 400 was being recycled.
As well as the headline grabbing "latte levy", the EAC has recommended a target of every cup being recycled by 2023, as well as an overhaul of the UK's producer responsibility system, which now sees producers paying only 10 per cent of the cost for local authorities to collect and process packaging.
The committee said that 2.5 billion disposable cups are thrown away in the United Kingdom each year.
"The U.K.'s coffee shop market is expanding rapidly, so we need to kick start a revolution in recycling", she said.
Coffee chains have been quick to react to the proposal but the task at hand is huge and any real change will take careful thought. But just 1 to 2% of customers do this.
A report published by the cross-party group says there is "no excuse for the reluctance we have seen from government and industry to address coffee cup waste".
Sandwich chain Pret a Manger has announced that it is doubling the discount for customers who bring in reusable cups to 50p.
While the environmental impact of charging extra for disposable cups would seem to be clear, based on the drop in use of plastic bags, retailers may not be so happy. The results will then be assessed before further steps are taken.
One system created to tackle the problem already exists.
Thérèse Coffey said she was “open” to a levy in October
The Paper Cup Alliance welcomed the recognition of industry efforts to increase recycling but cautioned against measures that hurt consumers and harm the high street economy.
Sophie Thomas, RSA director of circular economy and founding director of Thomas Matthews, says: "Companies like Simply Cups are the 1% which has thought about the collection stream".
"In the United Kingdom we have a very, "on-the-go" coffee drinking culture". These were "well meaning", MPs said, but not enough to tackle the scale of cup waste in the UK.
While looking like paper, they have a polypropylene plastic lining.
Additionally, it said that producers needed to pay more for packaging that proved hard to recycle, and that labeling needed to be improved so that consumers knew how to properly dispose of their cups.
"The onus should not just be on the consumer".
"However, it also highlights the need now to reframe the debate so that we can move forward".
"The question we must answer is what outcome is best and what interventions will work most effectively to deliver this outcome".
Edwin Harrison, owner of the independent Artisan coffee shop in West London, fears many of his customers would stay away if a charge was brought in.
About 2.5 billion paper cups are used in the United Kingdom every year.
"They recycle the paper fibre for use in premium papers". Many coffee drinkers are not aware of this and put their cups into recycling bins.
Britain should introduce a charge of 25 pence for disposable coffee cups to encourage recycling and reduce waste from retailers including Starbucks and Costa, a panel of lawmakers said.
