Great news for single-serve coffee fans. By the end of 2018, all of the Keurig® K-Cup® pods sold in Canada will be recyclable.
I love my Keurig coffee maker, partly because it’s quick and convenient, but mainly because of the consistent taste that comes with having a pre-packaged serving ready for me to pop in, close the lid, press the button, and then drink.
When looking at its entire life cycle, the pods also use less coffee and water than traditional drip coffee. In your Keurig machine, the hot water is squeezed through the coffee to get the most flavour from the coffee grounds.
Great coffee isn’t enough though. Keurig has been working toward some lofty goals to be more environmentally conscious, by partnering with recyclers, including Recycle BC, across North America for the past three years.
Their mission was to ensure that the pods can easily travel from recycling bins at homes to recovery facilities to a useful second life.
The coffee pods are made of plastic #5, which is widely accepted in municipal recycling programs in Canada.
You can recycle your K-Cup® pods in three simple steps: let it cool and peel off the foil lid, compost the coffee grounds, and recycle the #5 plastic cup, alongside other recyclable containers in your recycling bin at home.
