How to Dispose of VELO Nicotine Pouches Properly

1. may 2024

Knowing how to dispose of nicotine pouches is a must for VELO customers. We’re making moves to ensure VELO pouches can be responsibly disposed of, including making our new fully recyclable cans!

Learn about our efforts here, and find out how to dispose of nicotine VELO pouches properly to join us on our sustainability journey.


What are VELO nicotine pouches?

VELO pouches are pouches filled with nicotine, flavourings and a few other ingredients, small enough to tuck between your lip and gum. They’re a tobacco-free* way to consume nicotine without smell, smoke or ash.

Nicotine in a VELO pouch? Weird. No ash, no smoke*? Wonderful. You can read our guide to nicotine pouches to learn more about what they are, what they’re made from and how they work.


Why is it important to dispose of nicotine VELO pouches properly?

Throwing VELO pouches away properly (never dropping them on the ground or leaving them lying around) helps us make sure they don’t end up as litter.


VELO’s commitment to sustainability

We know that we can always do more to be better, and we’re on a journey to become more sustainable.

We’ve started by making VELO cans recyclable, using just one type of plastic, and we’re working towards becoming carbon neutral. You can read more about our commitment to sustainability and find answers to your questions here.


Can you recycle VELO nicotine pouch cans?

VELO cans are now fully recyclable, and most recycling facilities accept the type of plastic we use to make them. If they don’t, there’s probably an alternative collection or recycling point nearby, like at your nearest large supermarket.

Check with your local council to find out where your recycling points are.


Do you need to remove the label before recycling?

You don’t need to remove the labels from VELO cans before recycling them.


Where should you recycle VELO packaging?

Most recycling points take the type of plastic we use to make VELO cans, including roadside recycling points, supermarkets and tips. Visit your local council’s website to find out where your local recycling spots are.


Can you recycle VELO nicotine pouches?

We’re working on it, but you can’t recycle VELO pouches yet. We’re exploring new product developments to make our nicotine pouches recyclable in the future.


Where should you dispose of VELO nicotine pouches? 

You can keep your used VELO pouches in the handy waste compartment in the lid of the can. When it’s full, empty it and recycle the can.


Where shouldn’t you dispose of VELO nicotine pouches?

Used nicotine pouches have some residue inside, so they can’t be recycled. Empty your VELO can before recycling it.


Can you reuse VELO nicotine pouches?

VELO pouches release nicotine and flavour for up to 30 minutes. After use, remove the used pouch from your mouth and keep it in the waste compartment until you can dispose of it. They aren’t designed to be reused.


Why choose VELO nicotine pouches?

VELO Nicotine pouches are an alternative for smokers and vapers. There are a few reasons why you might choose nicotine pouches as an adult nicotine consumer:

  • No smell, no smoke, no tobacco*
  • Different flavours
  • They can be used anywhere
