disposing of your pods

When it comes to disposing of your coffee pods, there are three types that you may receive through your subscription. These pods will vary each month depending on the roaster we partner with. We're committed to promoting environmentally-friendly practices, so here are some guidelines on how to dispose of each type responsibly.

Aluminium Pods

& Compostable Pods

'Biocap' Pods

Aluminium pods

We have partnered with TerraCycles to offer a free recycling program for aluminium pods. Simply download a free shipping label to ship your Thieves Coffee aluminium capsules to TerraCycle, and they’ll recycle them.


Create a TerraCycle account. Reusing your Thieves shipping box, start collecting your aluminium capsules. Ps: Make sure to dry your pods.

Print Free Label

Sign in to your TerraCycle account to request a prepaid shipping label when your box is full, then download and print it.


Seal your box, affix the prepaid shipping label, and send it to TerraCycle to be recycled!

biodegradable/compostable pods   & 'biocap' pods

Our biodegradable and compostable coffee pods can be disposed of in your green waste bin or home compost bin, as they meet Australian standards for biodegradability and compostability. For further details on how to manage compostable goods, kindly refer to your local council or waste management program.
