CAPSULE RECYCLING
PROGRAM

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we've partnered with g2 revolution® to make it easy for you to recycle your Peet's Espresso capsules. By collecting your used capsules and mailing them in to be recycled, you'll be diverting waste from landfills.

HOW TO RECYCLE YOUR CAPSULES

  • Request

    Request a recycling kit online or request one from your local Peet's Coffeebar. The kit is free - you just pay $2.00 for shipping if ordered alone.

  • fill

    Enjoy your Peet's Espresso and then place your used aluminum capsule in the recycling bag. Fill the bag with approximately 100 used capsules.

  • ship

    Seal and return the recycling kit with its pre-paid shipping label to any UPS location.
    We handle the rest!

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR CAPSULES?

When your Peet's Espresso capsules arrive at the recycling facility, the aluminum will be separated from the coffee grounds. The aluminum is recycled and the coffee grounds converted to compost.

FAQs

Caspules Recycling Program

  • Where is the recycling program available?
    The program is currently available in the contiguous 48 states, which does not include Hawaii, Alaska or U.S. Territories.
  • I thought single serve coffee products were not recyclable. How does the program work?
    Although most public recycling services are not equipped to handle the recycling of single serve coffee products, there are commercial recycling centers that have the capability to separate the materials and recycle them. We have partnered with g2 revolution®, an innovative recycling company to make this program available to our customers. When used capsules are received at their facility, capsule components are separated. The aluminum is recycled, and the coffee grounds converted into compost.
