Nespresso has made a US$1.2 million commitment to better enable the recovery of its aluminium coffee capsules through New York City's recycling programme.

"Nespresso is deeply committed to the circular use of our products, choosing aluminium packaging because it both protects the quality of our exceptional coffees and can be recycled and reused again and again," says Guillaume Le Cunff, President and CEO of Nespresso USA.

"This collaboration will provide New York City-based consumers with another convenient way to recycle used capsules and other aluminium products at home, allowing these items to be given many new lives."

Nespresso says its collaboration with the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY), and Sims Municipal Recycling (SMR) will drive its recycling efforts further and provide consumers with additional options.
