August recycling – This month, coffee capsules

Saturday 6 August is when the recycling day next comes around again. This month we will be accepting selected coffee capsules (see below) which we will send off to the manufacturers recycling programme. Please ensure they are seperated into the individual types.

The capsules that we will be collecting include:

  • Nespresso,
  • Nescafé® Dolce Gusto®, and
  • L’OR, Moccona, illy or Jed’s coffee

The list of regular items that we collect each month includes – each seperated into their own buckets:

  • Plastic lids type 2 – must have the type 2 recycling symbol marked.
  • Plastic lids type 5 – must have the type 5 recycling symbol marked.
  • Metal Lids
  • Razors and shaving equipment
  • Oral care products and packaging (Please note, Colgate product only).
  • Household and hearing aid batteries.
  • Curtains – mould free.
  • Unused balls of wool
  • Bread bag tags.
  • Rubber bands from delivered Dominion Posts

A new addition to our list each month is tetrapacks – these are taken and processed into wall boards, so an exciting addition to our collection. Please make sure they are empty clean and dry.
