Drop off your Nespresso pods to us!
We are part of Nespresso's recycling program. Bring your used pods in and drop them into our recycling capsule boxes. Once they are full we will send them off to be recycled.
See how your small recycling act can have a large positive impact, right here in New Zealand.
If we aren't open (you've arrived after hours), leave them outside for us and we will recycle them for you. Otherwise the boxes might be outside for you anyway.
What is done with the recycled aluminium and coffee grounds?
Nespresso aluminium coffee capsules are sent to a specialist recycling plant based in South Auckland. There, the aluminium is separated from the residual coffee. The coffee is sent to an industrial composting facility to be transformed into compost, while the aluminium is recycled and sent back to the aluminium industry to produce new aluminium products.
Are the capsules made from recycled aluminium?
Nespresso capsules require a special grade of aluminium. The availability of recycled aluminium in this specific grade is very low. In fact, the best source of the correct grade of aluminium is from recycled Nespresso capsules.
