I have a pathological dislike of nespresso or other capsule machines: I dislike the idea of lots of wastefull and overpriced capsules.
Nespresso capsules are fully recyclable by the maker. Stores that sell either the machines or the capsules will take the empties back from you and return them to Nespresso. Also Nespresso provides plastic bags that UPS will deliver back to Nespresso at no cost to the customer. The capsules are 100% aluminum like soda cans.
