How can capsules be recycled?
Used Nespresso capsules can be collected in our free recycling bags. There are 2 different formats available, one for 200 used capsules and one for up to 900 used capsules. It is important to note that the coffee grounds do not need to be removed from the capsules; they do not disrupt the recycling process.
Full recycling bags can be returned in one of our Boutiques, in a UPS pick up point or by handing it over to the DPD delivery man when they deliver a new parcel.
For a companies/venues with a large consumption of more than 4000 capsules a month, it is possible to receive a large container to collect the used capsules. If you are interested in this solution, please contact our contact center on the free number 0800 496 53 for more information.

What happens to the used capsules?
Aluminium is completely and infinitely recyclable. Each capsule you recycle can come back in another everyday object – like a can, a bicycle, or a Victorinox knife. The possibilities are endless.
