How to dispose of coffee and hot chocolate canisters
Put coffee canisters and hot chocolate canisters into your black cart as garbage. These canisters usually consist of a paper/cardboard body, metal bottom and/or rim and foil lining.
Recycle the plastic lid in your blue cart.
Common canisters include:
- Beverage powder mix canisters
- Iced tea powder canisters
- Ground coffee and coffee bean canisters
- Hot chocolate canisters
- Loose leaf tea and tea bag canisters
Why can't these canisters be recycled?
These containers are made of multiple/mixed materials (paper tube, foil lining, metal bottom) that cannot be easily separated for recycling. The container as a whole is not recyclable.
