- Waste Removal
Recycling is top priority for the majority of businesses (and the whole planet). One well known company, Nestlé, is forging an easier way to implement recycling into their products' lifecycle by joining forces with local authorities to create a joint coffee pod recycling scheme.
Nestlé has partnered with Jacobs Douwe Egberts UK to create a "first of its kind recycling programme for coffee pods. Both these companies own a number of coffee pod brands including Nespresso, Nescafé Dolce Gusto and Tassimo."
Discussions have been ongoing with councils across the UK to organise having coffee pods to be collected from the kerbside. Podback, a not-for-profit organisation, is the “UK’s first cross-industry collaboration of its kind within the coffee sector, providing several easy ways for UK consumers to recycle their coffee pods.”
Podback will offer the following 3 options to recycle your coffee pods:
This scheme is set to launch in early 2021 and will cover brands including Nespresso, Nescafé Dolce Gusto and Tassimo with big plans to expand the programme to include all coffee brands that use plastic or aluminium pods.
