MARGOT O'NEILL: Meanwhile Nespresso is trying to address a problem by partnering with recycling company, Terracycle. TOM SZAKY, CEO, TERRACYCLE: Through their funding we were able to set up national platforms where you can send us the capsules, we pay you for shipping, we even give you a donation to your favourite school or charity for every capsule you send in and then we shred them, we separate the organics and compost those, and then we take the metals, melt those into new metal products and the plastics into new plastic products. WRITING ON SCREEN: Terracycle says that 500,000 Australians are recycling coffee pods every day.
