coffee recycling

Besides recycling cans and plastic bottles, I also recycle Nespresso coffee capsules. Just before Christmas, I recycled 1.5 kg of Nespresso coffee capsules.

Here's the photo of 1.5 kg of (used) Nespresso coffee capsules ready to be recycled.
Nespresso coffee capsules

In terms of ecological impact, each Nespresso coffee capsule produces tiny amount of aluminum waste. There is 1g of aluminum in one capsule (including the cover) compared to about 13g for a soft drink can (e.g. Mountain Dew can). Recycling aluminum represents energy savings of up to 95% in comparison with the production of primary aluminum.
To learn more about capsule recycling, please visit ecolaboration website.

Here's the recycle sign at Nespresso Boutique in Bondi Junction. Sorry for the quick photo, as you can see, it was taken by my cheap iPhone 4.

As for me, I do recycle for the environment, not for the cash back. There's no cash-back for recycling. After all, I don't live in beautiful Boston or picturesque Quincy.
