Follow these three 3 easy steps to recycle your capsules:
STEP 1: Affix the pre-paid shipping label (provided by illy) on the center of an empty collection bag.
STEP 2: Collect used capsules and place them in the enclosed collection bag. Please send at least 80 capsules per bag (four cans = 84 capsules). Then seal the top of the bag.
NOTE: Please only include individual capsules in the collection bag. The capsule tins are recyclable through your local municipal recycling program.
STEP 3: Ship full collection bags for recycling to Terracycle via UPS. Call UPS at 1-800-742- 5877, toll-free or visit www.ups.com for a complete list of drop-off locations near your home or work.
illy is the coffee industry leader in responsible production, pioneering protocols like large-scale, direct purchases from coffee farmers at a guaranteed profit. Over the past 20+ years, our supply chain system has helped transform coffee growing regions around the world, environmentally, socially and economically, raising farmers’ incomes and turning coffee into an opportunity for a better life for the farmers and their families.
Our two-plus decade commitment was recognized in 2011 with a Responsible Supply Chain Process certification from Det Norske Veritas (DNV), one of the world’s leading certification organizations. illy was awarded DNV’s first-ever certification of a company’s entire supply chain, recognizing that true sustainability must create value for all stakeholders. illy pays all costs associated with this certification, not the farmers – in contrast to many other certification systems, where farmers must invest to become certified and maintain certification.
