Coffee Capsules

So-called ‘recyclable’ aluminium and plastic coffee capsules are a huge problem in the global coffee industry. As the global market for coffee capsules grows, so does the waste associated with it. The global footprint of annual coffee capsule waste is estimated at more than 576,000 metric tons.

While the claim of ‘recyclable’ can technically be made, in reality Australia lacks the infrastructure to convert these pods to new and valuable products, and typically end up as landfill.
