Recycle A Cup - Recycle the Plastic from K-Cups

Recycle cup shot

There’s been a bunch of different efforts to make recycling K-Cups much easier than just opening them up and composting the coffee grounds. Recycle A Cup cuts and separates used Keurig K-Cups for recycling and composting. The big trick for any product claiming do help you recycle K-Cups is to separate the foil lid and filter that contains coffee cleanly. 

We had great success using the Recycle A Cup with both Keurig Brewed K-Cups and non-licensed K-Cups from Martinson and others. The bottom of the K-Cup was cleanly cut, and we had no problem composting the coffee grounds. The Recycle A Cup also comes with extra blades you can put in the sides of it to ensure your Recycle A Cup can help you recycle many K-Cups after the first blades wear out.

The Recycle A Cup cuts the plastic bottom off of the K-Cup allowing you to recycle the plastic bottom, and then compost the coffee grounds from K-Cups. 

Full video after the jump with a step by step how to use the Recycle A Cup.

We highly recommend getting a Recycle A Cup to help you start recycling your K-Cups. You can purchase your Recycle A Cup here.
