German City Bans Nespresso Capsules and Coffee Pods: The German city of Hamburg last month

The ban includes specific terms for 'equipment for hot drinks in which portion packaging is used' - specifically singling out the 'Kaffeekapselmaschine', or coffee capsule machine, which accounts for one in eight coffees sold in Germany. Nespresso has 14,000 pod pickup locations in 31 countries, capable of processing 80 percent of all the capsules they make, but they don't say how many they actually collect. The point with coffee pods isn't about recycling - it's about cutting down on the amount of stuff that we need to throw away or recycle."
