Recycle all your Aqua Optima® water filters through this programme
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.
We do not provide collection boxes for private collectors or public drop-off locations for this programme.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
When you want to post a shipment, download a free UPS label from your account, attach it to your shipment and then simply order a free pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book a collection online here. UPS will then collect from your location. You can also drop-off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point, which you can find here.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure that the filters are completely dry prior to shipping. Tape the box together securely ensuring there are no loose edges or corners. Print your label and attach it securely to the shipment.
Once collected, water filters are cleaned and extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or a payment of £0.01 to the non-profit organisation of your choice. For more information about our points programme, click here.
1 unit = 1 Aqua Optima® Water Filter Cartridge
The average weight of 1 unit (1 Aqua Optima® Water Filter Cartridge) = 0.172kg
Please weigh your shipment before sending it because the weight depends on the type of filter.
To earn TerraCycle® points, you need to send minimum 2 units (0.34kg) which will be rewarded with 17 points per unit.
Leading water filtration experts, Aqua Optima® are excited to partner with TerraCycle® to offer a way to recycle their water filters as a commitment to the environment and in order to tackle single-use plastics. This way you can enjoy great tasting water at home, work or on the move, whilst enjoying a healthy life and healthy earth.
