Nespresso Canada has expanded its Green Bag recycling solution to all communities in the province of Prince Edward Island, thereby enabling residents to recycle their aluminium coffee capsules.
The programme, which is now active in more than 1,000 communities across Canada, provides Nespresso users with a green bag to collect their used capsules.
Once full, the bag can be placed in the user’s household recycling system, where it will be directed to a sorting centre and processed to separate the coffee grounds from the aluminium for recycling.
The coffee grounds will be used as high-quality compost for local farms.
Nespresso Canada Marketing and Corporate Communications vice-president Frédéric Pasquier said: “We are proud to extend once again access to the Green Bag solution to new residents, in Prince Edward Island this time, so that they can simply and effectively give a second life to the coffee capsules they enjoy every day. We are pursuing our efforts to offer this service to new communities in the near future.”
Nespresso Canada launched the Green Bag programme in Prince Edward Island following its expansion to 116 communities in Western Nova Scotia.
