Recycle your Pods
Mosman residents can register to participate in an Australian first program recently launched by recyclers iQ Renew and CurbCycle in conjunction with Mosman Council to recycle aluminium coffee capsules.
The innovative pilot program, underway in Mosman and Willoughby council areas, has capacity for up to another 4,000 households to join the scheme which trials the convenience of collecting aluminium coffee capsules through kerbside recycling and may help develop a national coffee capsule recycling program.
Kerbside collection of targeted recyclables, such as aluminium capsules, has been challenging due to the difficulty of separating materials.
The use of a “Curby Bag” ensures the capsules remain separate from other recycling materials for aggregating and sending on for processing through Nespresso’s recycling scheme.
Householders can register to participate in the trial by visiting the WEBSITE or downloading the Curby App.
