Beverage Capsules Zero Waste Box
Use this box at your business or office to recycle any pre-packaged beverage capsules used in capsule-specific machines to make hot beverages.
Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to any UPS location or schedule a collection to send your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid UPS shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, organics and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The organics (such as the coffee grounds) are composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.
Please send us all varieties of used coffee or tea discs used at your business or office from any capsule-specific coffee or tea machine.
include used tea or coffee filters, loose coffee grounds, electronics (coffee makers) or any other coffee or tea accessory. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled nappies, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurised canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your local council system.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. paint from paint tubes). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping.
