How it works

The Community Collection Hub network is a network of locations around Australia where members of the community can take their 'non-recyclable' waste to be recycled with TerraCycle.

Becoming a Hub is the most sustainable way to collect TerraCycle waste. Bigger shipments mean less environmental impact, while earning more donations for the charity or school of your choice. Here's how it works:

  1. Request to join the program by clicking "Join the program" above.
  2. Set up your recycling station using the resources provided.
  3. The address listed in your TerraCycle account will be posted on the publicly available Community Collection Hubs map. Individuals in your area will use your location to drop off their L'OR, Moccona and illy coffee capsule waste. 
  4. Download a free shipping label from your TerraCycle profile, affix it to your box of waste and take it to your closest Australia Post to ship.

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 5kg you will receive $0.02 per piece of waste, which can then be donated to a non-profit organisation or school of your choice.
