Nespresso capsules are made of aluminium, an infinitely recyclable material.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS

Q & A
Can you explain your capsule recovery system with Canada Post?
This project offers an easy and simple recycling solution for Nespresso capsules. Currently, only the members located in the covered areas are concerned by this initiative. The used capsules are placed in a red bag that was designed specifically for this purpose and that is recyclable, of course. This bag is then placed in a Canada Post mailbox or Post Office. Once collected, the bags are shipped to a local partner where they undergo a unique technological process that separates the coffee grounds from the aluminum. Both materials are then repurposed; the coffee grounds are turned into quality compost and the aluminum is recycled.
Can I put my used capsules in another bag than the red (previously black) one that was provided to me? If I drop
my capsule directly in the Canada Post mailbox, will they still be recycled?
No, it's very important to put your used capsules in the red (previously black) bag that was sent to you. Once it's
filled, you can then drop it at a Canada Post mailbox or Post Office. This bag allows a proper triage of the capsules,
for their recycling.
How much do the bags cost?
The red bags are provided free of charge and sent automatically with every online or Nespresso Club capsule order.
They are also available in Boutiques.
Can I get some red (previously black) bags in the Boutiques?
Yes absolutely. You can simply ask one of our Coffee Specialist who will be able to verify that you reside in the targeted
I'm aware of a green bag already used in Québec and British Columbia. Why is this one red?
The main difference between the green and red bags is the way they get to their destination. With the green bag solution,
Club Members living in covered areas drop their green Nespresso bag in their home recycling bin or bag. As for the
red bags, they are either dropped off at a Canada Post mailbox or Post Office.
