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


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 or call (360) 734-3490.
