Did you know that when you enjoy a great cup of Dunkin® coffee brewed at home, you also have a chance to help reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills? Thanks to the Dunkin’® Coffee Bag Recycling Program, you can easily mail in your used Dunkin’ flexible ground and whole bean coffee bags to be recycled. And it’s completely free!
To make this happen, Dunkin’ has partnered with The J.M. Smucker Company, distributor of Dunkin’ coffee sold in grocery stores, and international recycling leader TerraCycle® to create a national program to recycle all Dunkin’ brand flexible ground and whole bean coffee bags. The bags are then cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products like park benches and picnic tables.
Get started by signing up with TerraCycle here, and be sure to check out their innovative recycling process. After that, recycle your empty Dunkin’ brand flexible ground and whole bean coffee bags. It’s as easy as 1-2-3:
- Collect used Dunkin’ at Home flexible coffee bags; no special container needed
- Log in to your account to download and print a pre-paid shipping label
- Place the label on your box of used bags, and send the package via UPS
The benefits of this program go beyond keeping plastic waste out of landfills. For every shipment sent to TerraCycle through the recycling program, you can earn points that can be donated to a non-profit, school or charitable organization of your choice.
