The down side of being one of the millions of people caught up in the coffee pod craze, is that you suddenly have a bunch more junk in the bin and are contributing to the latest convenience marketing at the expense of the environment.And Nespresso are the absolute best contemporary example of a business that created a crap load of waste and is now making a big old show of being sustainable by sponsoring sustainability conferences and taking back their own waste. (Don't get me started.)There are a few options for recycling, but you cannot put your pod into the recycle bin.Nespresso Coffee Capsules can be returned to any Nespresso Boutique for responsible disposal and recycling. Nespresso have a cannister system as well, where you can purchase a canister from them to store your used pods ready for return.
TerraCycle offers coffee capsule recycling of Nespresso Coffee Capsules. Request for a pre-paid postal label and mail your used coffee capsules to TerraCycle for recycling.
