Pride of Waltham Forest awards
Celebrate the best of our borough and nominate your local hero for our Pride of Waltham Forest awards.
Waltham Forest Council is working with Podback to provide this pioneering new service, enabling you to recycle your coffee (tea and hot chocolate) pods every week as part of your normal kerbside waste and recycling collections.
It’s easy to get involved, simply follow the steps below:
You can report a missed collection by completing our online form.
Plastic and aluminium pods can be recycled using separate collection bags provided by Podback.
Visit the Podback website to find out if your pods are accepted as part of this scheme.
The coffee pods are taken to a specialist reprocessing plant in the UK to separate the packaging from the used coffee grounds. The plastic and aluminium will be transformed into new products such as beverage cans or plastic garden furniture. The coffee grounds are used to create soil improver and renewable energy.
