How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy. 

Collect your used L'OR, Moccona & illy capsules at home using any available bag placed inside a box. When you are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking “Ship us your waste” and follow the prompts.

Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Don't forget to seal the bag and the box to avoid any leakage.  Ship the box to TerraCycle by dropping it off at your nearby post office.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: 

  1. All L'OR coffee capsules (aluminium only)
  2. All Moccona coffee capsules (aluminium only).
  3. All illy coffee capsules (aluminium only).

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure your coffee capsules are sealed in a plastic bag or dry before placing them in your collection box. Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, L'OR, Moccona & illy capsules are shredded to separate the coffee ground from the aluminium. The aluminium is then melted in order to be remolded to make new recycled products.



TerraCycle Points

For every shipment over 7kg you will receive $0.02 per piece of waste, which can then be donated to a non-profit organisation or school of your choice.

L'OR, Moccona and illy compatible capsules started to partner with TerraCycle® to bring a national solution to recycle their aluminium capsules.

Aluminium is known to effectively preserve the aroma and the flavours of the coffee and now enables you to enjoy the intense taste of our products.
