Podback was created in collaboration with several manufacturers of coffee pod systems, including Nespresso, Nescafe Dolce Gusto and Tassimo.

The coffee pod service aims to expedite the Council’s efforts to address the climate crisis by increasing recycling rates and reducing waste and carbon emissions.

Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste Cllr Toni Bradnum said: “We are always looking for innovative ways to recycle waste and avoid it going to landfill.

“We like to empower residents to make cleaner, greener decisions and we are sure that the introduction of this new coffee pod scheme will help build on our already excellent track record for recycling across the district.

“Introducing coffee pod collections through our existing kerbside recycling services will make it even easier for residents to participate at home while helping the Council increase the amount it recycles.”

The kerbside coffee pod recycling scheme was approved by the district council cabinet at a meeting on recycling on 9 June.

It will complement the existing programme the council launched last May in partnership with West Sussex County Council to collect small electrical items, textiles and batteries.

The partners collected more than 11,000 bags of disused products through this initiative.

In February this year, Morrisons partnered with Podback for a coffee pod recycling initiative, becoming the first supermarket to launch such an initiative.

The scheme allows customers to collect Podback Collect+ recycling bags from Morrisons stores and fill the bags with used coffee pods at home, before taking them to Collect+ delivered by Yodel drop-off points around the UK.
