How to Recycle Coffee Pods

  • 1 min read

Here's how to recycle coffee pods made with aluminium in three easy steps: 

1) Ensure that the coffee pods you're using are 100% aluminium. Many coffee pods which appear to be aluminium include other composite materials and these have to be returned to the original source for processing (note: some pod providers will offer a collection service for this). For reference, Owens organic Nespresso® compatible coffee pods are 100% aluminium.

2) Separate the coffee grounds from the pods. We know that people who use pods do this for convenience. So for speed and ease, you could even use a handy tool like the EcoPress which instantly turns the pods inside-out and collects all the grounds. These grounds can be composted with your food waste.

3) Rinse the aluminium pod out and add it to your tins/cans recycling collection.  

That's IT!!

29,000 coffee pods are sent to landfill every month! If you choose to use coffee pods, you can actively reduce this waste. Aluminium as a material is infinitely recyclable - all you have to do is follow the steps above to make a difference.
