RECYLING MADE EASY

All Nespresso capsules are recyclable at Oricol’s recycling facility in Johannesburg using a customised packaging separation machine developed by Nespresso. This specialised machine is able to separate the aluminium from the spent coffee grounds in the used capsules. Using a mechanical process, the aluminium in used capsules is separated from the coffee grounds and then undergoes a further recycling process at a steal smelter where it is reused to make new aluminium products. The leftover coffee grounds however, are given over to the Bokashi fermentation process which is a globally accepted wet waste composting solution that uses food waste only to serve as nutrient rich soil food.
