Use this Bag to recycle any pre-packaged beverage capsules used in capsule-specific machines to make hot beverages. Then ship any combination of bags to TerraCycle using a (separately sold) Zero Waste Shipping Box.
Zero Waste Bag
Processing of waste
Please send us all varieties of used coffee or tea discs from any capsule-specific coffee or tea machine.
When you receive your bag fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, place the bag in your separately purchased Zero Waste Shipping box, with any other full Zero Waste Bags. Once your box is full, bring it to any FedEx location to ship your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid FedEx shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, organics and plastics. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The organics (such as the coffee grounds) are composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.
Please do not include used tea or coffee filters, coffee grounds, electronics (coffee makers) or anything else other coffee or tea accessory. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled diapers, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurized canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your municipal system.
