What to do with
Coffee pods & capsules
The single-use pods used in many coffee machines are not usually accepted in your recycling collections from home. However, some types/brands of coffee pods (and other difficult-to-recycle items) are collected by a company called TerraCycle.
Some coffee pods are made from compostable plastic, which means that they will break down in either an industrial composting process or in a home compost. Industrial compostable plastics may not be suitable for home composting. Check the packaging for information.
If it is labelled as simply compostable then local authorities may collect them through garden or food waste collections if their processes are appropriate. Check with your local authority.
