Helping you to recycle

We’re working hard to do our bit and make recycling a little easier for our customers. We have initiatives in place to help you recycle unique plastics such as cosmetics packaging and soft plastics as well as a new store opening fully focused on reducing carbon consumption and plastic. Find out more below.

Free Coffee Pod Recycling Service

We are proud to announce that we are the first UK supermarket to join the Podback Coffee Pod Recycling Scheme!

  • Podback
  • You can now recycle your plastic and aluminium coffee pods for FREE and they’re all collected and reprocessed right here in the UK.

To take part, simply:

1) Click the link where you can order your free recycling bag to your home.

2) Fill with your used plastic or aluminium coffee pods. (Please note - we can’t take any compostable coffee pods!)

3) Download your returns label and drop your recycling bag at a local Yodel drop off point OR Recycle through your council’s Kerbside collections (in participating areas). 

… And we’ll take care of the rest!

 Thank you for support on recycling your coffee pods and reducing the amount of packaging that goes to landfill.

  • Cosmetic Recycling Near You
  • Recycling your cosmetic products could be easier and closer to home than you realise. Look for the green label on our cosmetics products and once you’re done with them, click below to find your nearest and most suitable recycling point to take them to.
  • Recycle In Store
  • You can now recycle your troublesome soft plastics with us. We have installed collection points at some of our UK stores so next time you do the food shop, you can recycle items such as carrier bags, crisp packets and bread bags!
  • Introducing our Eco Concept Store
  • In 2022 we opened a new eco concept store in Royal Leamington Spa. This has been specifically designed with sustainable building materials to reduce carbon consumption and will be home to several new plastic-reducing initiatives.
