How to dispose of our compostable pods

The deets on our pods

INDUSTRIAL COMPOST DISPOSAL

Check with your local council to see if they have a commercial composting facility. If they do, simply remove the foil lid of your pod and throw the pods into your green waste bin where they'll be taken to an industrial composting facility. Here, they will be exposed to high temperatures, different bacteria, and the materials will aerate for sufficient oxidisation in order for them to break down in approximately 90 days.

You can then collect the foil lids and recycle them. Roll the lids together into a golf-sized ball, as recycling systems don't pick up anything smaller than a bottle cap.

LANDFILL DISPOSAL

Whilst not ideal our compostable pods can also go straight into your general waste where they will go to landfill.

WHAT ABOUT OUR COMPOSTABLE POUCH AND BOX?

Our Nespresso®* OriginalLine compatible pods are packed in a home compostable pouch. You can throw it into your home compost, green waste bin (if your local council uses industrial composting facilities), or you can take it to your local community compost heap. If it ends up in landfill, it will still break down at an accelerated rate, just not as quickly as it would in compost. 

The packaging is made from standard cardboard, so you're fine to throw it straight into your recycling bin.
