May 06, 2022 // Franchising.com // Did you know that when you enjoy a great cup of Dunkin® brewed coffee at home, you also have the opportunity to help reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills? With the Dunkin’® Coffee Bag Recycling Program, you can easily mail in your used Dunkin’ Flexible Ground and Whole Bean coffee bags for recycling. And it’s totally free!
To achieve this, Dunkin’ has partnered with The JM Smucker Company, distributor of Dunkin’ coffee sold in grocery stores, and international recycling leader TerraCycle® to create a nationwide recycling program for all coffee bags ground and in Dunkin’ brand whole grains. The bags are then cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be reshaped to make new recycled products like park benches and picnic tables.
Get started by signing up for TerraCycle here and be sure to check out their innovative recycling process. After that, recycle your empty bags of Dunkin’ brand soft ground and whole bean coffee. It’s as easy as 1-2-3:
- Collect used Dunkin’ at Home soft coffee bags; no special container needed
- Log in to your account to download and print a prepaid 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 which can be donated to a non-profit, school or charity organization of your choice.
If you’re recycling your soft Dunkin’ brand coffee bags, don’t keep the good news to yourself. Let us know and inspire others on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok!
