How to Ridwell

Just like other multi-layer plastic, coffee bags are notoriously difficult to recycle because they use a combination of materials—but most recycling machinery is made for one specific material. Taking a new approach, our partner HydroBlox invented a way to use them, clearing the way for us to offer pickup.

Creating a future with less waste

If every household in the US had access to recycle the tricky plastics that Ridwell members do, the future of plastic waste would look very different. 

Today, less than 1% of this material is recycled in the US—an average of 0.08 pounds per household per year. Ridwell households recycle an average of 30 pounds per year—375 times as much!—just by putting it in a Ridwell bin instead of the garbage can.


Recycle and reuse all this "trash"

By taking a new approach, we've found 200+ partners to help people recycle and reuse hundreds of materials and we're adding more all the time.


The Ridwell community is 100,000 members strong across seven states.

Celebrate Earth Day with Caffe Ladro and Ridwell

The ability to easily keep plastic coffee bags out of landfills is especially exciting in our coffee-loving headquarters hometown of Seattle, so we teamed up with another local company to celebrate: Caffe Ladro.

Everyone, Ridwell member or not, is invited to drop off plastic coffee bags from any brand at any of the 16 Caffe Ladro locations throughout Earth Month. We’ll pick them up and send them on to get a second life.
