Thankyou for participating in Nespresso’s recycling program. You help make it one of the most successful independent recycling schemes in New Zealand.
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, recycling through NZPOST is on hold and our other recycling collection points are also closed or not operating.
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.
Upcycling at Home:
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.
Thanks for taking the time and effort to recycle. To you and your loved ones, stay safe & healthy during this time.
