The recycling of Nespresso capsules is an impressive example of comprehensive waste management "made by the BAREC Group". More than 2600 collection points are available throughout Switzerland. The BAREC Group guarantees the national collection and logistics service and at the same time manages the industrial recycling of all returned Nespresso capsules.
In concrete terms, the capsules are shredded in special installations at our plants in Moudon (VD) and Satigny (GE). The aluminium is separated from the coffee grounds and returned to circulation for remelting. The coffee grounds are mixed with organic material and used to create compost.
