Single-use coffee pods and capsules do not belong in curbside recycling. The cups are too small to be sorted properly at the recycling facility and belong in the trash.
- Consider participating in a mail back program that accepts coffee capsules for recycling. For example, Grounds To Grow On & Terracycle’s K-cup and coffee capsule program
- If you don’t use a mail back program, consider removing the coffee grounds and composting them in your backyard bin or pile before discarding the capsule in the trash.
