A Recycling Program That Turns K-Cups into Cement

It’s small, but it exists: in Canada, there’s a program that recycles K-Cups into cement. In 2014, it recycled about 1.4 million K-Cups for this purpose by drying the pods, shredding them, and heating them to 2000°C to form ash, which is subsequently turned into cement. The program has been so successful that it may expand into more Canada locations.
