What happens if I just throw my K-Cup® pod into the recycling bin? Can it still be recycled?
Published  9/25/20
Similar to many recyclable plastic containers that should be emptied prior to recycling, we recommend you first peel and discard the lid, empty the grounds and then toss in the recycling bin in order to ensure successful recycling.  The filter does not need to be removed.  Please check locally, #5 plastic is not yet recycled in all communities.
