This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I didn't know about this and like to think that I keep myself "In the know" so thought I'd share in case anyone else didn't know about it either as I can't see anything mentioned previously in any threads either.

Nespresso offer a recycling service for free as currently, you can't put the Nespresso pods in your usual rubbish to be recycled by the council. I have seen lots of comments in deals posted for Nepresso machines and pods about people being put off by pods as they aren't recyclable and now they are and you can.

The aluminium used to make the pod protects the coffee and does not leave a "taste" on the coffee either and is infinitely recyclable.

You can get a free Nespresso recycling bag at any Nespresso Boutique >>> Store Locator

By calling the Nespresso Club on 0800 442 442

Or by adding one to your next online order >> HERE

When you have filled the bag which takes 200 pods, you can either take the filled back to one of the 7000+ CollectPlus locations >>CollectPlus Nespresso Recycling
3211723.jpg

Take it Doddle which has branches at 160 Debenhams and over 500 Morrisons Supermarkets >> Doddle Nespresso Recycling
3211723.jpg
You can also drop it off at a Nespresso boutique or arrange a collection at the same time as your next delivery by requesting a collection at checkout when you do your next online order.




The pod is actually made of 88% recyclable aluminium with the other 12% being the filter, lacquer and silcone seal. They melt that off and you are left with pure aluminium which can they be made into more pods and reused again making them surprisingly eco friendly. Aluminium has a really long "life span" too and can be used and recycled over an over without using loosing any of its properties and can also be used to make cars, buildings and aeroplanes. It also takes 20 times LESS energy to recycle aluminium than producing it from scratch from bauxite.

When the pods get to the recycling plant, they are shredded, the coffee grounds separated from the pod and then recycled to make compost. The remaining pod and aluminium is then smelted down and ready to use again for more pods or bikes and car parts.

Thank you for this.

It pleases me immensely to know people care about the environment and sustainable living.
Metal pods with single doses of coffee being manufactured then shipped around the country in lorries only to be driven back to the factory to be smelted, all the nasty stuff burnt off then moulded into more single shots of coffee. Give yourself a pat on the back for recycling them - you truly are environmental saviours!!

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Recycle as the last one because it requires a lot of energy to recycle the materials.

Single portion coffee is inherently bad for the environment. That doesn't mean you shouldn't have it, everyone is going to have their own treats. But don't kid yourself that this recycling scheme makes them eco-friendly versus normal coffee or instant coffee.

BTW i do recycle mine, but i recon they would be able to get a lot more people on board if they had some kind of reward attached to it.
This is why if you have to have a pod coffee machine Nespresso are the best, all the others are plastic capsules. Also a good reason to only buy Nespresso pods and not copies, as they too are plastic usually
Been doing this for years. All the shops have the green bags and Collect+ labels if you want to post them. You can also get the delivered if you order your capsules online.

The only thing that would force companies to change their habits is a plastic tax. Mind you, they would probably push it onto the consumers.
I waste so much material with my Dolce Gusto pods as they have to be thrown in the bin. They are starting up a 6-month recycling trial but it is only for pods which are ordered directly from them, which is silly. I'm happy to recycle mine for free but not if I'm paying a premium to buy the pods from the manufacturer!

Not sure if you mean Dolce Gusto pods bought from elsewhere (eg: Tesco) or Dolce Gusto compatible pods which are made by a different manufacturer. If they won't recycle their own pods bought from other shops it is plain crazy but I don't see how any would offer to recycle "compatible" pods. They are made of different materials so it would become a nightmare for the manufacturer to separate them.
I've been recycling my Nespresso pods for a few years now and I like the fact that they do this but I always use their pods. I tried a variety of other compatible pods and found that the ones from Nespresso are the best.
Can you send third party pods or does it need to be branded?
Probably the easiest way to recycle Nespresso is to have your new capsules delivered to your nearest Collect+ and just take the recycling bag when you go to collect your order. Beats waiting for a courier. I have been doing that way for nearly 5 years so I'm not entirely sure what is new in the OP other than the Doddle option.

Third party pods are fine, the bag is filled and sealed by you before you hand it over so they don't wont check.

Also to another poster's comment, many copies use metal pods too, due to the heat of the hot water plastic capsules will likely wilt, soften or become an issue with the taste of the ground coffee.

I've never tried compatible pods, always get the proper Dolce Gusto -- but usually either from Amazon or Tesco when they're on special offer.
To drop off the used pods for recycling you need to print out a Collect+ label and you can only get this by providing an OrderID from the Dolce Gusto sales site.
It's a shame as there is a Collect+ point literally right across the street from me! Instead they all go in the bin.
Don’t put the plastic ones in the bag

This is just disgusting - they are wrapping up their greed into a recycling scheme. Move to Nespresso - their coffee is way better. I used to have Dolce Gusto and after I tried a Nespresso pod at a mate's place I was sold. They don't do the milk pods but have a really cool frother which only needs a press of a button and gives you the flexibility of using your own milk (I tried both regular and soy, almond, etc).
The only downside to Nespresso is that they rarely have any offers on.

Even if they push it to consumers, it will have the same effect. Consumers will just switch and buy a product that hasn't had a plastic tax added to it.

I think it should apply to any product/packaging that could have potentially been made from anything commercially recyclable.
we should open a thread for non original nespresso capsules like the one for mobile sims

If you're a member on the Nespresso site they will send offers by email. They may not be the best but i have got loads of free goodies. I also tend to buy in bulk so the offers always work better for me as some require you to by 10 + sleeves.

You can recycle Tassimo pods of you're prepared to save them up and drop them off at a collection point, including the wrap.

Plus, the collectors raise money for charity by being a collection point so double win.

Often you can drop off things like your crisp and biscuit packets while you're there.

Should really give credit back for recycling.
I have been recycling pods with Nespresso for at least 2 years. What really bugs me when you buy pods they try to sell you a bag. I am like why not put the bought pods in a recycling bag. Which I will use anyway..
I have just given up using my tassimo as i feel much shame when using the heavy plastic pods and my nearest recycling point is at least an hr journey. I have dusted down my old Senseo and gone back to that which just uses big teabags, coffee cheap and nice too.
Until the pods go mouldy and stink the kitchen... Those bags are too big.

The dolce gusto pods being unrecyclable is one of the reasons I don't use my machine much anymore.

How much better would the design have been if you just put a spoon in a hopper, and after using it provides you with a compressed puck of coffee grounds, which could go straight into the compost?

Oh - I see - the aluminium container was supposed to tie you into the form-factor, they lost the legal battle against third party suppliers, so I'm thinking this is trying to apply a bit of "greenwash"

The reward is the feeling you get knowing you're helping protect the planet and reducing your carbon footprint.
I collect the tasumo pods in a black bag then when I have a load I cut them open into a bucket then use the coffee on the garden. It's good for plants and the slugs dont like it.
You can also get the grounds free from most cafes and supermarkets food halls
The issue we had at work was the bag was large and it had to be full to send back. Even though with 10 people using the machine it took time to fill and would attract small flies as time went on.

I did say, if you have to have a pod machine and no one recycles the plastic capsules consistently like nespresso does with their aluminium ones.

If you're referring to instant out of a glass jar, you can shove it, its not really coffee.
Edited by: "MrMoonX" 10th Apr 2019
They should offer some sort of incentive for the recycling, if people were given a free sleeve for every 100 capsules recycled then a lot more people would do it and more people would probably buy directly from them.
