The Recycle A Cup® cutter works with the majority of coffee pod designs such as K-Cup® pods and similar brands. However, the cutter may not work with all brands of disposable coffee pods due to different pod sizes, materials and thicknesses. Please use the cutter to get a feel for how it works with your favorite coffee pod brand.
You can recycle the paper filter. Or you may compost the paper filter along with the coffee grinds.
