Outsmart waste

When is an Eco Refill pack not an Eco Refill pack? The answer is when it’s a park bench or watering can, of course.

TerraCycle® is a company with a brilliantly simple idea – to turn everyday waste items that aren’t recyclable through normal household collections into new products. Once you’ve finished with our Kenco Eco Refill packs or other types of instant coffee packaging waste our friends at TerraCycle will turn them into new plastics to make a whole range of eco-friendly products like park benches, watering cans or waste bins. They also collect other waste from our factories to make into shopping bags and pencil cases.

It won’t cost you a penny to send your Kenco Eco Refill packs to TerraCycle. All you have to do is to use the postcode, search facility using the link below to find your nearest Coffee Packaging Brigade drop off location. Simply take your Eco Refill Packs and wider types of coffee packaging to the location and deposit it in the branded collection box.

What happens to the collected Eco Refill packs?

Even though the waste from our factories is upcycled into shopping bags and pencil cases, we’ve found that recycling is by far the best way to re-use used Eco Refill packs. Once these have been melted and pelletized, the new plastic can be used to create a bigger variety of recycled products.
