Aldi EXPRESSI® Coffee Capsules
Coffee capsules are 100% recyclable. But are they being recycled? You might think you're "doing the right thing" by placing your plastic or aluminum pods into your recycling bin - because in most cases the box says you can, but they're ultimately ending up in landfill anyway.
It's said Australians are consuming about three million capsules a day, that's 3 million capsules potentially ending up in land fill. More than 1.5 million households in Australia own a capsule machine, a number expected to double by 2018
At Luxury Domestic Cleaning Services we would like you to bag up your coffee capsules and leave for us to collect for recycling or you can recycle your self by sending directly to TerraCycle were the plastic is then melted and remolded to make new recycled products.

Recycle Your Clothing
Today, the fashion industry is using more resources than the planet allows. By recycling your clothes, you help reduce the amount of natural resources needed to produce new garments.
Far too much fashion ends up in landfills, In Australia every year thousands of tonnes of textiles are thrown away with household waste.
As much as 95% of clothes thrown away could have been re-worn or recycled.
Once the old garments have been collected, We sort them into three categories:
- Rewear – clothing that can be worn again will be Donated to charities.
- Reuse – old clothes and textiles will be turned into other products, such as cleaning cloths.
- Recycle – everything else is sent off and turned into textile fibers to be turned into other items.
