K-Cup Recycling Program


At HBC, we recognize how harmful waste is to our environment. Whether it be mass-produced waste from a jobsite or the plastic straw in our drink, every piece that is recycled responsibly contributes to environmental stewardship. Our internal, employee-run Sustainability Committee has implemented several changes to reduce unnecessary waste from our daily operations. The Committee noticed how much plastic is used daily from the Keurig machines in our Orange County and Los Angeles offices. As a result, HBC now partners with Keurig and g2 revolution to recycle all the K-Cup coffee pods that are used. Through the implementation of the K-Cycle program, HBC is able to recycle 100% of the K-Cup coffee pod materials, ultimately diverting large amounts of waste from landfills.

In 2023 alone, our employees have already recycled approximately 90 pounds of plastic K-Cups. About 67 of those pounds have been converted to compost, and the remaining 23 pounds have been converted to recycled products. Since beginning this program in June 2022, HBC has recycled a total of 292 pounds!

Thank you to all our employee-owners for making a difference and contributing positively to the environment!
