L'OR, Moccona & illy Capsules Recycling Program - FAQ

Recycle L'OR, Moccona & illy coffee capsules through this program

Waste recycled
Money raised

This program will only accept L'OR, Moccona & illy coffee capsules made of aluminium. Capsules from other brands will not be accepted.

You do not need to wash out the capsules to send them for recycling. During the processing the coffee grounds will be separated and composted at our end.

Every item of waste received by TerraCycle will be recycled into new products. When we receive your L'OR, Moccona or illy capsules we store them at our warehouse until we’ve collected a large enough quantity to process the aluminium by cleaning and shredding it into small pieces which can be melted and recycled into new products. 

There is a maximum weight of 20kg allowed per shipping label. 

For environmental reasons we want to limit the amount of transportation. So bulk is better. Therefore, we request that your shipments weigh at least 2 kg, which is about 200 capsules.

When you are ready to send in a shipment, login to your account at www.terracycle.com.au and click "REQUEST A POSTAGE LABEL”. Select the "Send Me a Postage Label" option and TerraCycle will email an Australia Post pre-paid return label to you. Print the pre-paid label and affix it to your reused box or bag and bring it to a local Australia Post Office.


All postage costs are paid for by L'OR, Moccona & illy.

TerraCycle® recycling programs are open to people from all locations in Australia, no matter where you are.

We welcome anyone from almost any organisation in Australia to join in our recycling efforts! There are some practical considerations your organisations should keep in mind. For example, our program is not designed to accommodate recycling centres.
