  How to dispose of compostable coffee pods

Compostable coffee pods

Put compostable coffee pods into your black cart as garbage.

Coffee grounds inside the pod can be put in your green cart for composting.

Why can't coffee pods be composted?

Though marked "compostable", these coffee pods don't break down quickly enough for The City's composting process and may contain synthetic, plastic or other non-compostable materials. To ensure we're creating the highest quality compost possible, please leave these items out of your green cart.​​
