How to recycle your Nespresso capsules
Please note: The recycling bag will hold up to 85 Vertuo Capsules.
(Free with your coffee order)
We want recycling capsules to be easy so we offer 3 ways to recycle: you can drop off your used capsules at all Nespresso boutiques, at over 7,000 CollectPlus locations and we also offer a complimentary collection service from your home. You can obtain a free recycling bag from any Nespresso boutique , by adding a recycling bag to your basket when ordering your capsules on line or by contacting Nespresso on 0800 442 442.
Through our dedicated Nespresso recycling scheme, your used capsules are then sent to a specialist recycling processing plant in Cheshire where we process the capsules to enable their re-use : - the aluminium is smelted and reused for beverage cans, automotive spare parts, bikes and other everyday objects; the coffee grounds are reused as compost.

Recycling collections take place Monday-Friday between the hours of 8am and 8pm. Please leave the recycling on your doorstep if you will not be at home at the time of collection.
Please be aware that whilst we endeavour to collect the recycling bag(s) at the same time as your coffee delivery, in some situations this is not always possible. In this case, the collection will be completed by a different driver on the same day.
However if your coffee order is scheduled for delivery on a weekend, as this is outside our hours for recycling collection, it will be picked up the next working day.
