Coffee pods and capsules


Examples: Nespresso coffee capsules 

Please remember:

  • Nespresso, Nescafé Dolce Gusto and Tassimo machines - check Podback to see if you can use their recycling collection service.
  • Aluminium pods from Hotel Chocolat or Nespresso - the Podcycler can help you clean them so you can put them in your home recycling bin.
  • Other brands - check the TerraCycle recycling scheme.
  • Coffee pods cannot go in your home food waste or garden waste bins (find out why). If the label suggests they can, report it to us.

Check the label: If it's compostable plastic, you can put the pods in your home composting.

Hints and Tips: Why not switch to refillable pods or instant coffee? If you are sticking with your pods, please find out how and where you can recycle them.

Fact: Around 39,000 are produced EVERY MINUTE globally, with 29,000 of these going to landfill.
