Important changes to the Tassimo Brigade
Public Drop Off Points
We currently have 209 public drop off points
We are looking for public drop off locations across the UK so we can save many more Tassimo Tdiscs and Flow-wrap packages from landfill within your local community. If you would like to be one of our locations, please complete our questionnaire
All brigade members have been sent further information outlining the changes via email.
Please note: We now accept applications from home locations
Please read our guide to finding and shipping large boxes, which can be Downloaded Here
Tassimo wants to help enable you to have a more environmentally responsible home. By partnering with TerraCycle, Mondelez is preventing millions of Tassimo TDISCs and packaging from ending up in UK landfills. As an eco-friendly innovator, TerraCycle is going to recycle the collected used Tassimo TDISCs and packaging into useful products.
For the total weight of the TDISCS and outer foil packaging collected, you’ll be awarded TerraCycle points. Each TerraCycle point can be redeemed for a monetary contribution to the charity or school of your choice. Click here and see "How does TerraCycle count the waste I send in so as to allocate credit to charity?" to find out how totals are calculated.

Participating in the Tassimo Brigade is totally free! There are no sign up or participation fees, and the shipping is covered by the programme. Once you have joined the Tassimo Brigade, simply follow the steps below to receive your TerraCycle points:
1. Collect enough Tassimo TDISCS and outer foil packaging to fill up a box. Please note, you need to send shipments that weigh at least 3.38 kg (approximately 200 TDISCS/outer foil packaging) in order for your account to be credited 1 TerraCycle point for the weight of each unit received. For each shipment you send over 8.450 kg (approximately 500 TDISCS/outer foil packaging), you will be credited with 2 TerraCycle points per unit. You can send in less than 3.380 kg but you won't receive any TerraCycle points for the shipment.
2. Download a pre-paid shipping label (you can send up to 20kg of Tassimo t-discs and wrappers using the Tasimo label, please note that the maximum box size for the R24 label must not exceed 610 mm x 460 mm x 460 mm) from terracycle.co.uk. To acquire a pre-paid label, simply access your TerraCycle account online, and click “CREATE FREE POSTAGE LABEL”.
3. Send the box to TerraCycle by affixing the pre-paid postage label and dropping it off at the post office.
