Recycle your waste with Tassimo

  • Sponsor logo

Tassimo wants to save TDISCs and outer flow wrap packaging from going to landfill. As an eco-friendly innovator, TerraCycle recycles the collected used Tassimo T DISCs and packaging into useful products.

Participate in the programme by handing in your used capsules and foil packaging at one of our public drop-off points. You can see all the public drop-off locations by looking at the map. Open the map in a new window by clicking here.


Currently we are unable to accept new drop off locations on the Tassimo Brigade.

If you are interested in becoming a drop off location, we recommend that you click on the ‘Register Interest’ button below and fill in the application form. When we are able to begin accepting new locations again for this Brigade, we will contact you directly.

Becoming a public drop-off administrator in the Tassimo Brigade is totally free! There are no sign up or participation fees, and the shipping is covered by the programme.

To participate in the Brigade is very easy. Simply follow the steps below:

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.

1. Set up your public collection box in a suitable location. Supermarkets, independent shops, community centres, libraries make good locations where your community can submit their Tassimo waste. Please note, you need to send shipments that weigh at least 20 kg in order for your account to be credited 1 TerraCycle point for the weight of each unit received. You can send in less than 20 kg but you won't receive any TerraCycle points for the shipment.

2. Download a pre-paid shipping label from and attach it to your box. To acquire a pre-paid label, simply access your TerraCycle account online, and click “CREATE FREE POSTAGE LABEL”.

3. Order a pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877, and UPS will collect at your location.
