Recycling Process

Responsible & Sustainable

Nespresso uses aluminum for its capsules as it is the best material available today to protect the freshness, taste and quality of our high grade coffees. Aluminum is also infinitely recyclable, making it a valuable and sustainable material. Determined to make the best decision? Start recycling today and take your share in improving this world.

In the Netherlands we are able to recycle every Nespresso capsule

Together with our recycling partner Remondis, Nespresso Nederland has developed a tailored recycling system that separates aluminum and coffee out of used capsules - ensuring that nothing is wasted

Second Life

From coffee to biofuel

Once separated from the aluminum, the remaining coffee can be re-utilized in countless and ever more innovative ways. For instance, the coffee can be transformed into green fuel, such as bio gas for busses.

From aluminum to a bicycle

Aluminum is 100% infinitely recyclable. Each recycled capsule will find its way into numerous everyday objects, such as cars and bicycles. The possibilities are endless.

Our Programm
