Recycle your coffee capsules with NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto®
NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® has joined with TerraCycle to help provide a second life for used NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® capsules.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Effective 25 February 2019, the minimum shipment weight required to earn TerraCycle points has increased to 7kg.
By encouraging larger shipments through this program, we can help create an even smaller environmental footprint. We also encourage businesses and large collectors to consider sending 15-20kg at a time when possible, to maximise efficiency.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Firstly, login to your TerraCycle account and join the programme. 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.
Programme accepted waste: NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Capsules
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.
Once collected, the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® capsules are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.
For each shipment over 7 kilograms, your location will earn 2 points or $0.02 per capsule for the non-profit organisation including school or charity of your choice. To learn more about our points programme, click here.
