COMPOST & KEEP THE CYCLE TURNING
First cut each capsule into smaller pieces. This will enable micro-organisms to get to work and begin breaking down the coffee grounds and capsules, which will generate the heat required to kickstart the process. The more micro-organisms the better so give your compost a helping hand by adding more organic household waste such as food leftovers. Even rabbit food, corn starch and sawdust can help things along.
Depending on the quality of your compost, it can take 4 to 12 months for the capsules to fully break down but rest assured, nature is doing her thing.
Alternatively you can send your used capsules to our partner, Santokom. They are experts in recycling and composting, and will compost the capsules for you. www.santokom.ch
