Recycling your used coffee pods with Podback

Podback is a new coffee pod recycling scheme, created in partnership with the biggest names in coffee pods, Nespresso, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto and Tassimo, to give people simple and easy ways to recycle them.

South Derbyshire District Council will be one of the first councils in the UK to offer residents the opportunity to recycle your coffee pods every week along with your usual black bin and brown bin collections. Find out more about the service and if you can recycle your brand of pods on the Podback website.


What you need to do.

Look out for leaflets through your door from 19 April 2021. These will give further details of the scheme and how you can sign up.

From Monday 10 May 2021, we will collect your coffee pods with your normal refuse or organic collection – just pop your bags from Podback on top of, or next to, your bins. Check here to find out when your bin collection day is and what else can be recycled.


What types of coffee pods can be recycled?

Plastic and aluminium pods can be recycled using separate collection bags provided by Podback.
