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:
- TerraCycle (opens in a new window) who recycle them to create new products such as plastic baby bibs, notebook covers and park benches.
- Collect+ (delivered by Yodel): order recycling bags directly from any of the participating Podback brands (opens in a new window) online or supermarkets. Then take used coffee pods to your nearest drop-off point (opens in a new window).
Alternatively, the pods can go in your general waste.
