Coffee pods and capsules
Examples: Nespresso coffee capsules
- 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.
