Jersey City Joins NYC in Nespresso Capsule Recycling Program

Jersey City, New Jersey, has expanded its curbside recycling services to include Nespresso coffee capsules, mirroring a similar program in New York City.

This service extension aims to make recycling more convenient and accessible, contributing to Nespresso's global goal to recover at least 50% of its capsules by 2025. The initiative is part of Nespresso’s broader commitment to sustainability, which includes using recycled materials in their capsules and working with municipalities to enhance recycling capabilities.
