Important update to the TASSIMO Brigade®
The TASSIMO Brigade is now exclusively a Public Drop Off Location based program. There are 66 locations across Canada available to drop off your TASSIMO T-Discs. Please click on the “Find my nearest location” link below to see the drop off location address, hours of operation and the organization’s benefiting charity or school.
Please note that this Brigade is currently full. If you have already submitted an application to become a Public Drop Off Location, please note that we will keep it on file in the event that we are able to introduce more locations into the program.
For the time being, we are not accepting any more applications. Please continue to check the TerraCycle Brigade page for program updates.
Shipment minimum reminder for the TASSIMO Brigade®
If you are a Public Drop Off Location, please note that only shipments weighing at least 50 pounds (approximately 1436 T-Discs) will earn the TerraCycle point donation. Additionally, in order to receive the TerraCycle point donation, please ensure that the 50 pounds of T-Discs are in one shipment. If the 50 pounds of T-Discs come in separate boxes, TerraCycle will be unable to award points for those shipments.
By partnering with TerraCycle, TASSIMO is recycling their coffee, tea, espresso, milk and hot chocolate T DISCs, giving this packaging a second life! Every time you enjoy a great-tasting TASSIMO beverage, we want you to save the T DISCs (including the coffee grounds remaining inside the T DISC) and the outer foil packaging and drop them off at one of the Tassimo Brigade Public Drop Off Locations. TerraCycle will recycle the used TASSIMO T DISCs and packaging into eco-friendly products like plastic garbage cans, watering cans, benches, cutting boards, hard shells for coolers, play grounds and plastic lumber.

Thanks to the generous support from TASSIMO, for each approved T DISC received, the Public Location’s chosen school or non-profit organization will be awarded one TerraCycle point which can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or for a payment of $0.01 to the non-profit organization or school of your choice.

All TASSIMO T DISCs and the outer foil packaging can be collected through the TASSIMO Brigade such as coffee, tea, espresso, milk and chocolate syrup T DISCs. Please note the cardboard carton is already recyclable locally with regular paper products and should not be included with the T DISCs and outer foil packaging you send in.
