Podback - there is now an easier way for you to recycle coffee pods

Podback is a new coffee pod recycling scheme, created in partnership with the biggest names in coffee pods, Nespresso, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto and Tassimo, to give people simple and easy ways to recycle them.

Cheltenham is a pioneering local authority partner and will be one of the first in the UK to offer this great initiative to local residents, enabling you to recycle your coffee pods every week as part of your normal kerbside waste and recycling collections. Find out more about the service and if you can recycle your brand of pods on the Podback website.

Building a cleaner, greener future will require teamwork and action from us all, which is why we are excited and proud that the Podback initiative is launching in Cheltenham – look out for leaflets through your door from 19 April 2021.

From Monday 10 May 2021, we will collect your coffee pods each week with your normal refuse or recycling collection - just pop your bags from Podback on top of your recycling boxes or refuse bin. Check here to find out when your bin collection day is.

When there is a bank holiday in the week, refuse is normally collected one day later. Separate arrangements are made for the Christmas/New Year period. Check our bank holiday collections page for details.
