Please note: from 1/1/2020 the minimum shipment weight to earn TerraCycle points is 3kg. Shipments smaller than this will not earn points. 

How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy. 

Collect your used Seven Miles coffee bags at your café 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.  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 brands of coffee bags 

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure your coffee bags are empty 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 received by TerraCycle, the coffee bags will be shredded, washed and turned into granules. The granules are then sold to product manufacturers that make outdoor and durable goods such as picnic tables, decks, fences and shipping pallets.


TerraCycle Points

For each shipment of coffee bags over 3kg you send to TerraCycle, you will earn AU$1.00 per kilogram of waste collected towards the non-profit organisation or school of your choice.
