Coffee Pods

Coffee pods made of plastic, such as K-Cups, should be disposed of with regular household trash. They do not belong in the recycling bin due to their small size.The Keurig company offers a bulk recycling program for used pods. (Additional fees apply)

Coffee pods with a simple fabric or paper shell – and no other material – can be composted in a backyard composting pile, placed in the food scrap bins at transfer stations or picked up by a food scrap hauler. If not composted, they can be thrown in the trash.
