Filters (water)

Filters (water)


Water filters are generally made of plastics and activated carbon. So this means it is a composite material.


This should be placed in the general waste bin.

General Comment / Tip

Water filters cannot be recycled as part of your recycling collection scheme nor at Civic Amenity Sites. However, if you use a BRITA branded water filter you can recycle the used filters at most Argos and Homebase stores where boxes are provided for the collection of used cartridges.

TerraCycle® and Aqua Optima® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for all your Aqua Optima® water filters. The programme also offers participants the opportunity to fundraise for their favourite school or charity. Check HERE
