Recycle your used NESPRESSO* aluminium 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 hand in their used NESPRESSO aluminium coffee capsules at Council's Customer Service Desk, 26 Lyall Street, Westbury during our business hours - 8:30am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday.  

Please ensure capsules are contained within a tied up see-through bag.

* IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all capsules are acceptable...Nespresso

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.
