How You Can Recycle

Make a change. Recycle a capsule. Nespresso Australia is committed to ensuring we are part of a sustainable coffee economy. The good news is our capsules are made of aluminium, which is infinitely recyclable. To make it as easy as possible for our Club Members to return their used capsules we have created a nationwide recycling program.

Used Capsules

We’ve developed several products to make
it simple for you to return your used
capsules. Store your used Nespresso
aluminium capsules at home with the
Recycling Canister, which can hold up to
100 used capsules. Alternatively, use our
resealable recycling bags available online
or at your local Nespresso Boutique, which
can hold up to 200 used Nespresso
aluminium capsules.

Collection Points

We want to make recycling your used
aluminium capsules as simple as possible,
and are continuously exploring new
services to do so. You can return your used
Nespresso aluminium capsules to over 300
collection points nationwide at partner
florists and garden centres. You can also
bring them back to all our Boutiques and
Pop-Up Boutiques where you can find our
special recycling bins to dispose of them.


Club Members have a recycling point within
10km of their address (June, 2016)

The number of Nespresso Recycling
Points in Australia has doubled in the past 12 months

Nespresso Business

We offer a free of charge collection service to
our business customers for their used Nespresso
capsules. Upon request, we will supply a large
Recycling Collection Box that can hold up to
1,500 used aluminium capsules (both
Professional & Consumer Nespresso capsules). As
both Nespresso capsules are recyclable, we also
encourage businesses to collect the used
Nespresso aluminium capsules that employees
can bring in from home, making it even easier to
participate in recycling.

specially designed satchels, and drop into your nearest Post Office or Red Street Australia
