FAQS

Podback Journey info

After collection, the coffee pods are taken to a specialist reprocessing plant in the UK to separate the packaging from the used coffee grounds. The coffee grounds are used to create soil improver and renewable energy. The aluminium will be transformed into new products such as beverage cans or plastic garden furniture.
Aluminium pods will be reprocessed at Tandom Metallurgical Group Ltd. in Congleton, near Stoke-on-Trent.
Recycling bags are recovered and used to create energy.

Kerbside

No, the coffee grounds are removed from the pods at the reprocessor. The coffee is then used as a soil improver and to create renewable energy.

Terracycle

The way we are recycling is changing. Our Terracycle recycling program is still available to use, but will no longer be available sometime in the near future. For details on how to use the Terracycle Recycling programme please go to the Terracycle website

Recycling Bags

The quantity of pods will depend on the brand of pods you use. For maximum capacity please ensure pods are drained and the bag is filled to the dotted line.
You can put any participating brand’s pods in the appropriate bag.
The teal-coloured bag marked P is for plastic coffee pods or the white bag marked A is for aluminium coffee pods.
If you use both aluminium and plastic pods you cannot put them in the same bag, you will need to use separate bags. This is so they can be sent to the correct reprocessing facility.
We’ll add Podback bags to every order made through our website. The quantity of Podback bags you’ll receive will cover the number of pods in your order.
No, the coffee grounds are removed from the pods at the reprocessor. The coffee is then used as a soil improver and to create renewable energy.
Please drain any remaining liquid from your used pod before adding it to your recycling bag.
Used pods will only be accepted in designated Podback bags, whether that be at a drop off point, or kerbside collection.
The current recycling bags are not recycled as part of the recycling process due to their contact with liquids, labels and other complex materials. The bags are recovered from waste and used to create energy. We are looking at ways to recycle these in future.

Drop Off/Collect+

The bags for Drop Off are available via participating brand websites, and we hope to have them available in supermarkets soon.
