Important Notice

Please note we are not currently considering applications from schools as the venue for housing Coffee Packaging Brigade collection boxes. We feel there are more suitable locations out there that are more accessible to the public and open longer hours.

The most suitable locations and those that have been accepted so far include - municipal community locations (community centres, recycling centres, libraries, town halls etc) and retailers (supermarkets, coffee shops, newsagents etc).

Recycle your coffee packaging waste with Kenco®

Just like you, Kenco® wants to help enable a more sustainable future for the world.

That is why we have partnered with TerraCycle to bring you the new Coffee Packaging Brigade®, which means you can prevent all your coffee packaging waste such as coffee refill bags, jar lids, coffee bean bags and coffee sticks from ending up in UK landfills. TerraCycle will recycle the collected coffee packaging waste into generic plastic products such as park benches, watering cans and waste bins.

After decantering the bin into a large box, send the box to TerraCycle using the freepost label. The units collected will be weighed, and for the weight of each coffee packaging waste unit (14g), you will be credited with 2 points.
