How to recycle coffee capsules, Why is recycling aluminium so important?

In the Aluminum recycling sector, according to the International Aluminum Institute, Aluminium can be recycled endlessly without losing any quality like copper. Aluminium recycling requires up to 95% less energy than primary aluminium production.


Recently, we are facing the issue of recycling of used coffee pods/capsules.

The easiest way to have a nice espresso for using coffee pods, more than 40% of US households own an espresso pod machine; in the UK, it’s nearly one third. Even many Michelin-starred restaurants have opted for them

Unfortunately, major parts of pods are not being recycled, however, Nespresso has been encouraging their customers for recycling coffee capsules. They have started to collaborate with the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY), and Sims Municipal Recycling (SMR).

Their capsule recycling program will influence all the coffee pods lovers to remind that coffee capsules are recyclable and could be the part of the circular economy.
