This case alleges that Keurig marketed K-Cups as not just recyclable, but also easy to recycle. In fact, they are not recyclable in most Canadian cities. They contaminate municipal recycling programs, diverting resources away from recycling and towards sorting them out.
The court will decide at a later date if the case will proceed as a class action.
The case seeks to represent everyone who purchased a K-Cup or a Keurig coffee machine since Keurig began making these misrepresentations on April 15, 2016.
