Q: What is the K-Cycle® program?
The K-Cycle® recycling service offers workplaces an easy way to collect their brewed Keurig® K-Cup® pods to be 100% recycled.
Q: How does the K-Cycle® program work?
The process is simple: place your brewed Keurig® K-Cup® pods in the K-Cycle® recovery bin. Once the bin is full, present the bin with its pre-paid shipping label to UPS for pick-up, or drop it off at any UPS location. We take it from there with the help of g2 revolution®, an innovative recycling company. The K-Cup® pod components are separated and turned into compost and recycled productions — creating goods with a useful second life, such as shipping pallets.
Q: How can I get started with this recycling program?
Please visit www.KeurigKCycle.com to create an account and get started recycling Keurig® K-cup® pods in your workplace.
Q: Once the K-Cycle® recycling bin is full, what do I do with it?
Shipping is included in the cost of your K-Cycle® recycling bin, which will arrive with a pre-affixed UPS Carbon Neutral shipping label. Simple present the box to your UPS driver or call 1-800-PICK-UPS to arrange a pickup. If the label is not pre-affixed, please contact g2 revolution® at K-Cycle@g2rev.com for a replacement label. All boxes are shipped via UPS carbon neutral shipments. To learn more, visit: https://www.ups.com/us/en/help-center/shipping-support/carbon-neutral/recipient.page
