Your last sip of coffee marks the beginning of its second life.

The aluminum in every Nespresso capsule you recycle goes into the making of something useful again.

This time, it’s a pair of chopsticks.

Here is how you can recycle your coffee capsules

With the Nespresso recycling plan, we provide a solution for recycling your used aluminum capsules and fulfilling your commitment to protecting the environment.

Fill your recycling bag with used Nespresso capsules and return them during your next home delivery.

For our Nespresso Professional customers, we offer a free of charge collection service of Nespresso Professional capsules.

Coffee is protected from the outside, while aromas are preserved inside

  • Oxygen

  • Moisture

  • Light

Aluminum is the most protective material available today. It guarantees the freshness of the carefully crafted aromas and rich flavors of our coffees. Lightweight but strong, aluminum seals the coffee from external elements which could affect its quality – oxygen, moisture and light.

Inspiring sustainable consumption

    At Nespresso, we seek ways to make a difference anywhere we can. This is why we are committed to doing business responsibly. It means ensuring the sustainability of your coffee through a comprehensive program, with observable results.

    "The sustainability program with Nespresso is surpassed by no one… they have set this up so that if you are responsible and you want to participate in true recycling: it is very easy to do."

    The last drop doesn’t mean the last use for aluminum

    Aluminum is not just 100% recyclable, it’s infinitely recyclable. Each capsule you recycle can come back in another everyday object – another capsule, bicycle or window frame.

    • Fertilizer

    • Energy

    The last drop doesn’t mean the last use for coffee grounds

    Once separated from the aluminum, the used coffee grounds are sent to local farms to be used in compost for vegetable farming. Using coffee grounds improves drainage, aerates soil and acts as a natural pest repellent.

    Now and into the future

      Ever since our journey began with coffee more than 25 years ago, we have been deploying sustainability with the same passion and expertise. Today, Nespresso's coffee capsule recycling program includes 39 countries. We hope you will embark on this journey with us towards creating a more sustainable future.
