Unfortunately, this program is currently full. While you wait for more slots to become available in this program, we encourage you to add yourself to the wait list by clicking the "Join Program for Free" button above, and look at our Filters Zero Waste Box.

How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

Once you have joined the program and are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking the green "Ship us your waste" box above and follow the prompts. Your shipping label will be emailed to your inbox. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by calling UPS at 1-800-742-5877, and schedule a pick up for the next business day.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: Brita® dispensers, Brita® bottles, Brita® bottle filters, Brita® standard filters, Brita® Longlast™ filters, Brita® filter packaging, Brita® faucet filtration systems, and Brita® pitchers.

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure the products and packaging are completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the Brita® products and packaging are separated by composition and shredded to make new recycled products. The carbon filters are separated for use in polymers. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.


TerraCycle Points

TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-proft organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.

Through a partnership with ME to WE, every specially-marked Brita® purchase ensures one year of clean water for someone who really needs it. Take the extra step and empower sustainable change by donating your TerraCycle points to ME to WE here!


By drinking filtered water, we can reduce the amount of plastic bottles that ends up in landfills and oceans. In fact, every Brita® filter used means 300 standard 16.9 oz plastic bottles saved. And if that's not enough, Brita® has teamed up with TerraCycle to recycle their already eco-friendly products and packaging.

Don't forget to sign up for a filter reminder to make it easy to keep your filters fresh and water tasting great.
