Coffee pods

Coffee pods

Guidance

These cannot be recycled at home. They are increasingly made solely from aluminium but the coffee grounds inside are difficult to extract. However, some types/brands of coffee pods (and other difficult-to-recycle items) are collected by a company called TerraCycle who recycle them to create new products such as plastic baby bibs, notebook covers and park benches. Alternatively, the pods can go in your general waste.
