The Keurig K-Cup programme has been discontinued. There is no longer any pick up at the Welcome Centre

Have a Keurig or other single-use pod coffee maker in your office area and need to dispose of the single-use cups?

Don't trash them!

  • Empty cup contents (grounds) into composting
  • Remove the lid and place in the trash
  • Collect the plastic cups in a separate plastic bag and place the bag next to your paper recycling (label the bag if it's not a clear (see-through) bag.
