Collection Points

Our growing list of Collection Points aims to make it easy for individuals to reduce their household waste by offering convenient places to drop off used coffee grounds and filters for recycling.

Then we’ll pick them up and get them to farmers who will turn them into compost for growing delicious things!

In addition to the basic information we note below, we’ve created a map to give you more details, so you can easily decide which Collection Spot best suits your needs.

You’ll notice that some of the Collection Spot hosts below are cafes listed on our supporters page and give us their shop’s coffee waste, too!

Want to jump on the bandwagon and host a Collection Point? Whether you’re a business owner or an individual, please get in touch!
