Thank you for participating in Nespresso’s recycling program. You help make it one of the most successful independent recycling schemes in Australia.
While Nespresso Boutiques are closed as part of the urgent effort to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus we are unable to take your used capsules at our Boutiques.
Additionally, many of our recycling collection points are also closing, closed or only available for "essential services".
We share your passion for recycling and sustainability. To continue recycling during this time the following options are still available:
Collect and store: Continue to collect your used Nespresso capsules and store them until things return to normal. We recommend you store them in an air-tight or sealable bag or container, in a cool, dry place.
Start by separating the coffee grounds from the aluminium capsule by safely removing the coffee grounds with a teaspoon
Use the coffee grounds in your compost or in your garden – it makes a wonderful fertiliser!
Either keep the aluminium until collection points re-open or use the aluminium from capsules and get creative by “upcycling” them at home.
Alternate Recycling Options:
Australia Post Recycling Satchel: You can buy our Australia Post Recycling satchels and drop the full satchel into any Australia Post street post box. Please avoid returning to Post Offices to ensure social distancing and take care to properly seal your full satchel before posting.
Bulk recycling boxes are still being delivered and collected: Designed for customers who can regularly collect 1,500 used capsules, our Bulk Recycling Box Kits are still available, and you can still organise collection of filled boxes.
