How it works

Participating in your home, office, or organisation is completely free and very easy.

  1. Create a free TerraCycle® account online
  2. Join the Lavazza Capsules Recycling Program.
  3. Collect your used Lavazza capsules in any box.
  4. When you are ready to send a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking “Request a postage label” and follow the prompts. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by dropping it off at your nearby post office.

What you can recycle in this program

Accepted Waste:
• Lavazza Blue, Espresso Point and Espresso Point Maxi capsules
• Lavazza A Modo Mio capsules
• Lavazza capsules compatible with Nespresso® machines

Not accepted:
• Other brands of coffee capsules
• Cardboard or other external packaging (place cardboard in kerbside recycling)

Best practices for recycling

To avoid excess moisture, we recommend draining your capsules and sealing them in a plastic bag before placing them in your collection box. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, Lavazza capsules are shredded to separate the coffee ground from the outer packaging. The plastic is then cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.



Recycle all your Lavazza capsules

For 125 years, Lavazza has pursued a company vision based on passion for work, for the product and the land in which it operates. As part of their commitment to sustainability, Lavazza has partnered with TerraCycle to help you recycle their capsules, helping to preserve the environment for the future.
