Recycling Bag
(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.
