For a class of interacting particle systems in continuous space, we show that finite-volume approximations of the bulk diffusion matrix converge at an algebraic rate. The models we consider are reversible with respect to the Poisson measures with constant density, and are of nongradient type. Our approach is inspired by recent progress in the quantitative homogenization of elliptic equations. Along the way, we develop suitable modifications of the Caccioppoli and multiscale Poincaré inequalities, which are of independent interest.
