Recycling & Waste

Coffee Pods


Coffee pods are NOT accepted in curbside recycling. They are too small to be sorted at the recycling facility.

However, there are some mail-in programs for coffee pods:

  • Terracycle has a mail-in recycling program.
  • Nespresso has a take-back program for their coffee pods.

Coffee grounds can go in food scraps (organics recycling).

Some coffee pod brands are compostable. Check the packaging and/or search for products on the Biodegradable Products Institute database.
