Ask SSC Q. Can you recycle Keurig K-Cups?

2013-01-25-

KeurigDear Janae:

Unfortunately, Keurig K-Cups are not recyclable at this time and need to be disposed of as garbage.

Keurig K-Cups cannot be recycled because they are made of three materials: a plastic cup, which is lined with a heat-sealed paper filter, and a polyethylene-coated aluminum foil top.

Here is a link to an article about this topic that appeared in the LA Times.

Thanks for your question. For additional questions or more info please contact us at ssc@ssc-inc.com or call (360) 734-3490.
