TASSIMO RECYCLING

TASSIMO cares about the environment. That’s why we’ve partnered with TerraCycle to enable recycling coffee pods and packaging. The TASSIMO Recycling Program operates through over 130 TerraCycle drop-off locations across the UK. You can drop off your T DISCs and package wrap at these collection points.

WHAT CAN YOU RECYCLE?

All TASSIMO products are recyclable either via the Terracycle TASSIMO Recycling Program, via Kerbside collection or your local recycling centre. The products can be recycled these ways:

 

  1. The T DISCs (TASSIMO pods) of all types and sized and the T DISC wrap packaging can be recycled via TerraCycle collection points.
  2. The dispenser carton is made of paperboard and can be recycled bia kerbside recycling.
  3. See if you can donate your TASSIMO machine or it can be recycled at your local recycling centre.

WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE WASTE?

Once collected, the TASSIMO packaging is given a new life. The TASSIMO pods and wrapping materials are cleaned and melted into hard plastic. This plastic gets remoulded to create new products, such as planters, watering cans, benches or tables. You can buy these sustainable, recycled products via TerraCylce.

RECYCLING FOR CHARITY

The TASSIMO Recycling Program supports charity. By recycling your TASSIMO products via TerraCycle, the Hub and Spoke location will receive points for the amount of waste dropped off. The administrator can then donate these points to a charity of their choice. Ask the administrator of your nearest collection point which charity they are supporting.
