What to do with
Water filters cannot be recycled as part of your recycling collection scheme nor at household waste recycling centres.
However, if you use a BRITA branded water filter you can recycle the used filters at most Argos, Robert Dyas and Homebase stores where boxes are provided for the collection of used cartridges.
Terracycle also offer a BRITA water filter recycling programme.
For other water filter brands, please contact the manufacturer to find out if they provide a similar service. If the manufacturer is unable to accept them, old filters can be disposed of with your normal rubbish collection or in the landfill container at household waste recycling centres.
