K-Cups & Coffee Capsule Recycling

A Keurig coffee machine is a wonderful thing. But the downside to the Keurig is all of those little, plastic k-cups piling up in the landfill.

Recycle Coffee Capsules

Did you know the capsules from your single-serving coffee brewing system are recyclable? With a bit of elbow grease, you can fully or partially recycle Keurig K-Cups, Tassimo T-Discs, Verismo Pods, and Nespresso Capsules. After removing the coffee grounds - which can be composted - the packaging can be recycled as follows:

  • Keurig - the body is a #7 plastic and most lids are aluminum foil: both can be deposited in your recycle bin and the paper filter can be composted. Some pods now have a plastic-lined-foil lid, which is not recyclable.
  • Verismo - the body is a #5 plastic and can be recycled in your recycle bin; however, the lids cannot! (polymer blend)
  • Nespresso - the body and lid are aluminum and can be recycled in your recycle bin
