Recycle in partnership with BRITA®

BRITA® is proud to have launched a recycling solution for its MAXTRA+ filters. Through the BRITA® MAXTRA+ Filters Recycling Program, you can send your used MAXTRA+ filters to TerraCycle, where they will be given a second life.

Please collect at least 9 used BRITA® MAXTRA+ filters before sending your waste to TerraCycle for recycling. Don't forget, shipments under 1kg will not earn TerraCycle Points.

How it works

The recycling program is easy, free, and provides a fundraising opportunity for participants.

To join the recycling program and start recycling your filters, simply follow these easy steps: 

  1. Create a TerraCycle account by clicking "Sign Up" in the top right of this page and join the free BRITA® MAXTRA+ Filter Recycling Program. 
  2. Save your used BRITA® MAXTRA+ Filters (and the soft plastic packaging if you have it) and when you have collected 9 of them, please dry them and then place them into a box. Please note that only BRITA® MAXTRA+ filters will be accepted as part of this recycling program. 
  3. Download a pre-paid Australia Post shipping label from your TerraCycle account, which will be sent to your email. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box.
  4. Drop the box at your closest Australia Post office to ship for free!
