TerraCycle is an innovative recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle materials.
We have partnered with TerraCycle to provide a zero-waste approach to coffee capsules. This allows guests to enjoy quality Nespresso coffee without the guilt of what happens to the pod. Through TerraCycle, used pods and mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, organics and plastics. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The organics (such as the coffee grounds) are composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.
