How it works

Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to any UPS location or schedule a collection to send your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid UPS shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.

What happens to the waste?

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, organics and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The organics (such as the coffee grounds) are composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.

Accepted waste

Please send us all varieties of used coffee or tea discs used at your home or office from any capsule-specific coffee or tea machine.

Please do NOT...

include used tea or coffee filters, loose tea or coffee grounds, liquid waste, compostable capsules, mouldy coffee, electronics (coffee makers) or any other coffee or tea accessory. Hazardous waste (sharp, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, toxic, infectious or pathogenic) which presents a danger to the environment, or to people. Batteries, pressurized canisters, broken glass and medical waste.

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. paint from paint tubes). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping.

Help make this nationally recyclable

We work with brand partners to create recycling solutions that enable consumers to recycle their products and/or packaging for free. If you represent an eco-minded company and are interested in working with us, please contact customersupport@terracycle.co.uk.
