Sustainability

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

illy Australia is collaborating with Sell and Parker Australia to maximise the recyclability of our products.

As an ethical sustainable coffee brand, illy seeks to minimise the packaging we use to recycle our products.

To this end, we suggest you repack used illy iperespresso capsules into their original packaging and send to the recycler via Australia Post.

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!
