Coffee Bags

Special Instructions

Coffee bags can be placed in the compost cart or the landfill cart – depending upon what it is made out of.

If your coffee bag is made out of plastic, it must be placed into the black landfill cart. 

If your coffee bag is made out of paper, then it can be put into your brown compost cart.

Ways to Reduce


Buy Coffee in Bulk

Instead of buying single bags of coffee, buy coffee beans from the bulk section of your supermarket. Bring an empty coffee bag or jar into the store for your coffee instead of usingĀ a brand new container every time.

Ways to Reuse

Upcycle Your Coffee Bag

You can turn a plastic coffee bag into a planter or vase, or you can turn several into a reusable tote bag.
