Java Jive

  1. I haven’t really paid much attention to what’s in those “milk” T-Discs, but I have been trying to do my part when it comes to recycling them. I pull the foil off, empty the coffee (or rinse the “milk”), and send the plastic disc to meet it’s recycling master. Lots of work, but it’d be hard to live with myself if I were to just give them the heave ho.

    Huh, interesting. I didn’t see a recycling number on the pods, so I’d assumed it couldn’t be done! I’ll look again.

    And it turns out that you, Chris, are correct! The discs still don’t have any indications on them, but from the Tassimo site:

    Each T DISC is designed to prepare a perfect cup and cannot be reused. The T DISC should be removed from the machine shortly after brewing and discarded. The used T DISC is suitable for energy recovery through incineration. In locations where plastic collection systems exist, you can cut away the label, rinse the remaining coffee grounds, tea leaves or milk from the chamber and deposit the chamber and label with general plastics (non PET).

    So that makes me feel a LOT better!
