Nespresso and Canada Post Launch Red Bag Capsule Recycling Solution

Nespresso and Canada Post Launch Red Bag Capsule Recycling Solution

From now on, customers living in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, all of the territories and all of Atlantic, Canada can can simply place their used Nespresso aluminum capsules in a fully recyclable Red Bag provided for free by Nespresso Canada when coffee capsules are purchased. Then they just drop off the sealed capsule-filled bag at a Canada Post outlet or in a red Canada Post mailbox, at no extra cost.

The idea is to make its aluminum capsules even easier to recycle with the launch of a free and innovative return option for Canadians. 

The used aluminum capsules are shipped to a local partner where they undergo a technological process - the first of its kind in Canada - which mechanically separates the coffee grounds from the capsule. The aluminum, an infinitely recyclable material, is repurposed and the coffee grounds are transformed into quality compost, used by farms.

To demostrate the truly infinite potential of aluminum, Nespresso partnered with Caran d’Ache and Victorinox to develop limited-edition accessories, the Caran d’Ache 849 Nespresso ballpoint pen and Victorinox third limited edition “Original Swiss Army Knife”, “Pioneer Nespresso Dharkan”.. Both are made from recycled aluminum coffee capsules and presented in the satin midnight blue of Dharkan.

Jean-Luc Valleix, Nespresso Canada President says that “the Red Bag solution aims to increase the collection capacity of used aluminum Nespresso capsules by making it as easy as possible for our customers to participate.”

He also adds that “we have always set ourselves apart, as evidenced by our decision to develop capsules with aluminum, a material that not only preserves the freshness of coffee grounds but is also infinitely recyclable. Nespresso has been committed to ensuring sustainability for more than 25 years, taking an active stance in working with local partners and governments and investing in tailored recycling solutions across Canada and around the world.”

Meanwhile, Rod Hart, Canada Post’s Vice-President, Parcels and International Business says that “we are delighted to partner with Nespresso Canada and to help it achieve its goals. We take great pride in helping Canadian businesses grow, and in offering more convenience to busy Canadians.”
