Make a difference, recycle one pod at a time

Every recycling effort you make creates a positive impact.
What may seem used can be the start of a whole new chapter.
Your used Nespresso capsules and grounds are given a second life, when you return them for recycling.

From coffee to compost

Once separated from the aluminium casings, the used coffee grounds are collected and sent to a local urban vertical farm, Sky Greens Farm.

From compost to food

Used coffee grounds are used as nutrient-rich compost to grow fresh organic vegetables. Using coffee grounds improves drainage, aerates soil and acts as a natural pest repellent.

From aluminium to everyday objects

Nespresso capsules and pods use aluminium, which is a material that is infinitely recyclable. Each capsule you recycle can be given a second life. The aluminium can be melted and reused in everyday objects such as pens, bicycle frames and much more.

RECYCLE TO WIN

Between 1 October and 31 December 2021, recycle your used Nespresso capsules and stand a chance to win Limited Edition, Second Life Coasters in a monthly lucky draw.​
