No, your shipment can be any size. However, you must ship at least 5 lbs of Brita® waste to earn 50 TerraCycle points per pound received. Remember, the shipment size requirement is applicable only if you would like to earn TerraCycle points.

If your shipment weighs over 5 lbs, then each pound of Brita® waste your location sends in will earn your account 50 TerraCycle points.

No, you do not need to clean the waste before sending it in to TerraCycle. However, please remove as much of the remaining product as possible before shipping. And please remember, UPS will not accept dripping packages, so make sure your waste is dry prior to shipping.
