Important Update to the TASSIMO Brigade®!
We would like to bring to your attention that as of October 1st 2014, only shipments that weigh at least 50 lbs (approximately 1436 T-Discs) will earn the TerraCycle point donation. Our goal is to encourage large shipments because large shipments means fewer shipments. Fewer shipments means less fuel and a smaller environmental footprint. It's one more way that we can all do our part in making this program an even bigger win for the environment.
Additionally, there are currently no more open spots in this Brigade. In January 2015, you will have the opportunity to apply to be a public drop off location.

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 send them to us. 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.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Sign up for a TASSIMO Brigade
- Collect your used TASSIMO T DISCs and foil packaging in a cardboard box. YOU WILL NEED TO SEND SHIPMENTS THAT CONTAIN AT LEAST 50 lbs (APPROXIMATELY 1436 T DISCS) IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE TERRACYCLE POINT DONATION..
- Download a pre-paid postage label
Thanks to the generous support from TASSIMO, for each approved T DISC received, your collection location will be awarded one TerraCycle points 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.

Participation in the TASSIMO Brigade is simple and it's completely FREE: no sign up fees or costs to you. For more information, check out the TASSIMO FAQs.
And to make collecting all your waste that much easier, download our helpful TerraCycle "Collect, Store and Ship Guide" for some tips and tricks that will make the collection process simple and mess-free.

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.
