Participation in the Coffee Packaging Recycling Programme is completely free and very easy.
Flatten coffee packaging and bag up lids separately. Tape the box together securely ensuring there are no loose edges or corners. Print your label and attach it securely to the shipment. Please remember that the minimum shipment requirement is 7 kg.
Once collected, the Coffee Packaging waste is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
