RECYCLING

L’OR Espresso capsules are made from aluminium to provide you with the best espresso. Aluminium is known to effectively preserve the aroma and the flavours of the coffee and now enables you to enjoy the intense taste of a L’OR espresso for a unique experience.

HOW CAN I RECYCLE MY L'OR COFFEE CUPS?

All you have to do is collect your empty coffee capsules and send them in. Our partner Terracycle will then recycle the capsules and the coffee. Follow the steps below to recycle your L'OR coffee pods.

STEP 1

Collect your L'OR capsules in a cardboard box. Put the capsules in one (and only one) plastic bag before putting them in the box to avoid spillage.

STEP 2

Once you have collected at least 200 capsules, request and print a free UPS shipping label by filing in the form below.

STEP 3

Attach your label to your parcel. Please make sure you use a sturdy cardboard box which is no larger than 60x60x50cm in size.

STEP 4

Book a free pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book online. Alternatively, you can also drop off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What happens to the capsules that I send?

All of the waste received by TerraCycle® will be recycled to create new products. When we receive your L’OR Espresso capsules, we store them in our warehouse until we have a sufficient amount to allow us to recycle them. The aluminium is finely ground and washed, then melted and recycled to make new products.

Is there a limit to how many L'OR capsules I can send in?

There is a maximum weight of 20kg allowed per shipping label.

How do I send the L'OR espresso capsules to Terracycle®?

We suggest that you send the capsules in the box in which you received them. But you can also use any box that you have, providing it can contain about 200 capsules (the minimum amount for sending). Simply select your box, place a plastic bag inside to avoid leaks, place your L’OR capsules in the box, stick the label on the package and organise for it to be collected by calling the telephone number in the e-mail sent with the label. The size restrictions are 60x60x50cm with a maximum weight of 20kg.

Do I have to wash my used capsules to get rid of the coffee before sending them?

You do not need to wash the capsules before sending them to be recycled. During processing, the coffee grounds will be separated from the rest of the capsule and composted.

Are there any L’OR Espresso capsules that cannot be sent for recycling?

The maximum weight for sending is 20kg.

Why is there a compulsory minimum weight for sending L’OR capsules to be recycled?

We want to limit transport for environmental reasons. Sending bigger quantities at once is better for the environment. We therefore ask you to send a minimum weight of 2kg which corresponds to about 200 capsules.
