Coffee Pod Recycling Project

Who doesn’t enjoy a hot mug of quality coffee in the morning?

Many households and business make use of coffee machines that utilise a variety of coffee pods to suit their desired flavour. Unfortunately, the pods have a significant impact on the environment because of its use of mixed plastics and aluminium.

Luckily coffee makers are catching on and are committed to producing pods with recycled or compostable capsules. It is for this reason the collection and recycling of coffee pods has fast become a valuable business.

The recycled aluminium is smelted and recycled into objects such as car spare parts, drink cans and bicycles if not reproduced into coffee pods.

 

There are also lots of benefits of recycling aluminium; it can have an amazing lifespan, either through its use in durable products or because it can be recycled again and again without losing its technical properties. Recycling aluminium also requires 20 times less energy than producing it directly from ore.

We are encouraging you to collect your empty coffee pods separately from your other recyclable items, so that we can deposit them at buy-back centres separately and monitor the profit received on selling the coffee pods, which will be donated to a worthy charity on an annual basis.

Our Coffee Pod Project is supported by
