Recycling your used espresso capsules is easy. Just follow the steps below and we will take care of the rest. We also understand that you may also use some other (compatible) capsules in your Nespresso®* machine. To keep things simple for you, and because it’s just the right thing to do, you can also put any other Nespresso®* compatible capsules in your recycling bag, and we’ll recycle those too.
