THIS is HOW YOUR CAPSULES ARE RECYCLED

FAQ

How are my capsules recycled? What happens with them?

Our recycling partner receives used capsules in order to give a second life to both the aluminum capsule as well as the residual coffee grounds.

The process of separating the aluminum from the coffee grounds is performed using a packaging separation machine.

Once the two items are separated, the aluminium is sent to a recycling facility to be used in new aluminum products. The used coffee grounds are used in the production of high quality compost.

Can you explain the recycling process to me?

Nespresso Canada has set up convenient return options to make it easy for our Club Members to return their used capsules to us for recycling. Our recycling partners then help us give a second life to both the aluminum capsule as well as the residual coffee grounds.

Does Nespresso recycle other single-serve coffee capsules?

Nespresso capsules are different from other single-serve capsules as they are made of aluminum, a material that is infinitely recyclable. Only Nespresso capsules are being recycled with the separation machine at our recycling partners.

How can I be sure that they are really recycled?

Nespresso works closely with service providers to ensure that capsules collected are recycled. Nespresso conducts audits of service providers and controls monthly the volume of recyclable capsule returns monthly.
