HERE IS HOW IT WORKS
Collect your used Nespresso capsules and ensure the bag is very well sealed.
Place the bag in your regular recycling bin.
Then, the bag is delivered to a recycling facility where the coffee grounds are separated from the aluminum. They are then composted and the aluminum recycled.

THIS IS HOW YOUR CAPSULES ARE RECYCLED
Q & A
Can you explain your capsule recovery system that is presently being conducted through separate collection?
This project offers a capsule recycling solution from the comfort of your home. Currently, only members located in specific zones are able to participate in this initiative. The used capsules are placed in a plastic bag that was designed specifically for this project and that is, of course, recyclable. This bag is then placed in the household recycling container. The bags containing the capsules are then sorted at a waste-sorting facility where they undergo a unique technological process that separates the coffee grounds from the aluminum.
If I put my used capsules directly in my recycling bin or in a bag other than the recyclable green one I received, will the capsules still be recycled?
No, it's crucial to put your used capsules in the green bag that was sent to you and to put that same bag in your recycling bin. This bag allows the capsules to be correctly sorted to ensure they are recycled.
How are my capsules recycled? What happens with them?
The used capsules are entirely recycled by the process of separating the aluminum from the coffee grounds. Aluminum is the only material that is infinitely recyclable. The coffee grounds are used in the production of high-quality compost.
How do I know if I am able to take part in this project?
The Club Members within the targeted zones will receive an informative email. Please call the Club at 1-855-325-5781 for further information.
How long will it be before you expand your project to the rest of Canada?
We are in discussions with waste-sorting facility managers in several regions of Canada. We are working steadily to develop lasting partnerships with local stakeholders. We are confident in our project and we believe that other stakeholders will also participate and continue the expansion of our recycling program.
