We Recycle - You Can Too
Calgary, Edmonton and most other major cities in Canada and America now offer socially responsible curbside recycling for plastics. This process adheres to most major urban area recycling programs. The plastic used in the T-Disks, capsules and/or Pods is very similar to Yogurt containers or Sour Cream.
To ensure you are doing your utmost to recycle your T-Disks, capsules and/or Pods follow these steps:
Step 1: Remove Foil Lid.
Step 2: Remove Coffee Ground’s and Paper Filter. Remember that coffee grounds are a natural accelerant for composts (see below).
Step 3: Rinse Plastic T-Disk, capsule and/or Pod and Recycle!
Want to do more?
Coffee composts in a speedy and efficient manner. You can sprinkle used grounds around plants before watering to let the coffee grounds give a slow release of nitrogen. You can mix used coffee grounds into soil of houseplants or new vegetable beds to change the alkali balance of the soil and give the new plants the advantage that the nitrogen supplies. Adding coffee grounds to your plants, combined with water left over from cooking your vegetables can be like giving your plants a healthy vitamin dose!
