Recycling Campos aluminium coffee capsules is easy and free. All you need to do is collect your used coffee capsules and when you’re ready, send them in. We’ve partnered with TerraCycle® who will recycle the capsules and the coffee inside too.
Simply follow 3 easy steps:
- Collect your used Campos aluminium coffee capsules after use. Once you’ve collected at least 5kg or more, put the capsules in one (and only one) plastic bag before putting them in to a box to avoid any messy spillage
- Set up a free account and download a shipping label from TerraCycle® by clicking “Ship us your waste” and follow the prompts.
- Print out your label and sticky tape it securely onto your box. Don’t forget to seal the plastic bag and the box to avoid any leaks. Drop off the box at your local post office to ship to TerraCycle®.
No, there’s no need to empty out coffee from the capsules or even wash them before sending them off to be recycled. During the recycling process, the coffee grounds are separated from the capsule and composted.
Every item of waste received by TerraCycle® will be recycled into new product. When TerraCycle® receives your Campos aluminum capsules, they store them in a warehouse until they’ve collected a large enough quantity to process the aluminium by cleaning and shredding it into small pieces which can be melted and recycled into new products. The coffee grounds are separated from the capsule and composted.
There is a maximum weight of 20kg allowed per shipping label.
