SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK


SUEZ environment is an international resource management company that operates in more than 70 countries around the world. In the UK it is known as Suez Recycling and Waste Recovery UK.

Faced with new environmental challenges, SUEZ’s activities have recently undergone an in-depth transformation, moving away from the role of waste and recycling service operators to that of resource managers, seeking to reduce the pressure on our natural resources (water, energy, raw materials); and maintain the flow of materials in the economy where they can be recycled and reused to create new materials and products.

Suez is Bracknell Forest Council’s waste collection contractor and will be providing the services to collect your used Nescafé Dolce Gusto coffee pods with the rest of your recycling, as part of your existing kerbside collection service. It will also be separating your coffee pods from the rest of your recycling to send them to our recycling partner, where they can be made into new recycled materials and ultimately into new products like garden furniture, fencing and decking panels and drainage pipes.

Bracknell Forest Council


Bracknell Forest Council provides services to the towns of Bracknell, Sandhurst and Crowthorne and the areas of North Ascot, Warfield and Winkfield. Most of this area is situated in the county of Berkshire; although the southernmost parts of the council area include small parts of Surrey and Hampshire. Bracknell Forest Council spans almost 43 square miles and has a population of around 120,000 people, living in over 48,000 households.

Bracknell Forest Council is our local authority partner and will be supporting the household kerbside collection of your Nescafé Dolce Gusto coffee pods. Please place your used coffee pods in the collection bag provided and put the bag into your blue recycling bin for collection with the rest of your recyclable materials.
