Recycle coffee pods with 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 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. Please note you may need to change your web browser to access the site. You'll also find more information about the scheme on our FAQs page.

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 has launched in Cheltenham. Did you see the information leaflet delivered through your door? If not, download a copy of the Podback leaflet and details of their scheme.

We are now collecting 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. We will collect your bags every week, however if your bags are not collected one week please put them out the following week.

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