HOW IT WORKS

Recycling your illy iperespresso capsules is completely free and very easy.

Collect your used illy iperespresso capsules at home using any available plastic garbage bag placed inside a cardboard box. When you are ready to send the shipment, download a shipping label from the illy australia website by clicking here and following the prompts.

Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Don't forget to seal the bag and the box well to avoid any leakage. Ship the box to illy Australia recycling by dropping it off at your nearby post office.

Best Practices For Recycling

To recycle this waste efficiently, please make sure your coffee capsules are dry and well-sealed in a plastic garbage bag before placing them in your collection box. We recommended placing the capsules in a colander or sink, in order for the excess water to drain from the capsules. Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. Unfortunately it is not possible to ship dripping or wet packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the illy iperespresso capsules are processed to separate the coffee grounds from the plastic. The plastic is then melted down in order to be remoulded to make new recycled products, including furniture and playground equipment!
