South Derbyshire District Council - Podback Scheme

Posted: Tue, 13 Apr 2021 10:09 by Parish Clerk

South Derbyshire District Council is one of two in the UK to offer recycling for used coffee pods in a new partnership with Podback.

Podback is a consortium of the leading coffee pod manufacturers.

Households will be able to sign up to recycle their used plastic and aluminium coffee pods in separate bags weekly alongside their brown and black bin collections. More »

This includes coffee pods from Nespresso, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, Tassimo, L'OR and Starbucks.

People can register for the new service at www.podback.org there will also be a link to the site from the Council's website www.southderbyshire.gov.uk/podback

Podback will send them a roll of bags for recycling aluminium or plastic coffee pods. Once received, they start recycling straight away.

The plastic and aluminium pods are processed separately to produce plastic pellets and aluminium ingots. The plastic pellets will be used by manufacturers to produce high grade plastic items, like garden furniture, while the aluminium ingots can create drinks cans, car spare parts and other everyday objects.

South Derbyshire District Council and Cheltenham Borough Council are the first two in the country to offer the service with more councils expected to offer this in the coming year. » Less
