Recycle your used Nespresso Coffee Capsules

Meander Valley Council has joined the Nespresso bulk recycling collection initiative, becoming a collection point for used Nespresso aluminium coffee capsules.

Members of the public are invited to drop off their used Nespresso aluminium coffee capsules during Council operating hours (8:30am to 5:00pm) in the recycling bin provided, located in the foyer of Council Offices at 26 Lyall Street, Westbury.

Please note that ONLY Nespresso brand aluminium coffee capsules can be accepted.
 
How are Nespresso capsules recycled?

Nespresso aluminium capsules are sent to a specialist recycling plant based in Nowra, NSW.  There, the aluminium is separated from the residual coffee. The coffee is sent to an industrial composting facility to be transformed into compost, while the aluminium is recycled and sent back to the aluminium industry to produce new aluminium products.
