How to Recycle Keurig Vue Packs
Make sure and wait for the Vue pack to cool before peeling the lid off.
We've put together an overview of how to recycle the Keurig Vue Packs. Recycling for us here at Single Serve Coffee is really important, and knowing which single serve coffee products can be recycled will help put your environmental mind at ease. The Keurg Vue packs have a peel off lid that allows you to recycle the plastic cup or V-Cup, and you can also recycle the cardboard box the Vue packs come in.
You'll need to check over at Vue Recycling
to see if your community can recycle the cup and cardboard box. The #5 plastic the Vue pack is made of isn't as widely accepted in Massachusetts but the number of communities recycling #5 plastic is growing. We also recommend calling your town office and tell them you want to be able to recycle #5 plastic. One simple phone call can make a big difference in getting more things recycled in your community.
You'll find the pull tab on the underside of the Vue pack.
Pull the lid off by pulling on the tab.
You'll be left with the filter and foil top. Don't peel
too quick or you'll tear the filter and coffee will fall out.
We have a countertop waste bin we use for spent espresso
grounds and also to put these filters in. We'll rip them open
and compost the coffee.
The #5 plastic Vue Pack cup or V-Cup is ready to be recycled.
Here is our recycling ready to go with the Vue pack
ready to join the recycling.

Nutty Keurig "VUE" story!! The new "OneCup" K-Cup pods from Rogers Coffee Co. are the best 'recycle' solution. And they cost 33% less (at Costco) and the coffee tastes great and there is no messy K-Cup disassembling required!
I've bought my last K-Cup, I only use the Rogers' "OneCup" nowadays.
