Coffee-pod recycling scheme gathers momentum


Two more English towns are due to launch coffee-pod recycling services.

A scheme run by waste management giant FCC Environment and specialist Podback will be rolled out across sites in Luton and Wigan this month.

The service was trialled at 11 household waste recycling centres in Suffolk and two in Berkshire recently, while supermarket giant Morrisons said it would install coffee-pod recycling points in more than 350 stores around the country.

Yet more locations are set to be announced over the coming months.

Podback provides recycling centres with containers and signage and manages collection and distribution of plastic and aluminium to UK reprocessors. Used coffee grounds are treated by anaerobic digestion

Executive director Rick Hindley said: “Our pilots over the last year with FCC have proved successful and have received positive feedback from residents using the service.

“We hope offering people another option to recycle their used pods will help to make recycling even more convenient and accessible and increase rates of recycling overall in these new locations.

“We have an active pipeline of local authorities wanting to include Podback at their recycling centres and look forward to announcing more soon.”
