From Monday 26th March 2018 until Friday 21st September 2018, recycle your Tassimo T DISCs locally.
Any remaining bags will still be collected when you put them out with your recycling box and bags, but Tassimo T-DISCs or outer packaging put out in any other container will not be accepted.
If you would like to continue to recycle your Tassimo T-DISCs once you have used up your recycling bags, you will be able to take them to the container at Cherry Orchard household waste recycling centre at Piper Lane, CV8 2SS, Kenilworth.
Tassimo, TerraCycle, SUEZ and Warwick District Council thank you again for your efforts.
Tassimo, TerraCycle®, Suez and Warwick District Council are launching a 6-month trial to recycle Tassimo T DISCs and outer packaging. With this trial it is possible to easily recycle your Tassimo pods via your household recycling and dedicated collection points at your Household Waste Recycling Centre. By running this trial we aim to identify new collection models that could potentially lead to a new mainstream coffee pod recycling solution. Please read the info below to know how to participate and start collecting your T DISCs and Tassimo Flow Wraps.
With TASSIMO, you can enjoy all your favourite Lattes, Cappuccinos and Americanos at the touch of a button. With Costa, Kenco, L’Or, Cadbury and more to choose from you are guaranteed to find the perfect drink for you. Tassimo machines work with specially developed capsules known as Tassimo T DISCs which can then be recycled through TerraCycle.
Founded in 2001, TerraCycle, Inc., is the world’s leader in the collection and repurposing of hard-to-recycle post-consumer waste, ranging from used chip bags to coffee capsules to cigarette butts. The waste is collected through free, brand-funded recycling programs, as well as various consumer and government-funded models. The collected waste is reused, upcycled or recycled into a variety of affordable, sustainable consumer products and industrial applications.

About Warwick District Council
Warwick District Council has a kerbside sort collection for its residents across most of the district, producing high quality recycled materials.
Currently our recycling rate (2016/7) is 55%, which is well above the average rate for England at 44.9%. This trial with Tassimo, offers our residents another option for recycling more of their household waste and we are hopeful that it will be well received and successful.
