Can I recycle my coffee bags and pods from Waitrose?

  • Updated

Yes, your bag is made from LDPE#4, which is recyclable with some councils. You can head to and select ‘plastic bags and wrapping’ to check if this applies to your local area. Alternatively, you can take them to the recycling point in your local supermarket.

Pact pods are made of aluminium which means they’re 100% recyclable. To recycle your pods, simply rinse out the coffee, stack the pods up, and pop them in your recycling. Alternatively, recycle them with the Podback scheme. Head to to find out more.
