Thévenaz-Leduc is part of one of the largest recycling groups in Switzerland. Active at regional, national and international levels. Thevenaz-Leduc focuses on recycling non ferrous metals (as aluminium), scrap iron, and waste paper.
Nespresso and Thévenaz-Leduc offer 2,283 used capsule collection and recycling points in Switzerland. The collected capsules are sent to two recovery companies near Lausanne and Geneva, which shred the capsules and separate the aluminium from the coffee grounds. The recovered aluminium is sold for re-melting. The coffee grounds are mixed with organic matter to produce compost.
In mid-2010, the recycling rate was over 70% of the Nespresso capsules sold in Switzerland.
