Important!

Important update to the shipment size requirement!

Starting May 1, 2017, the new shipment size requirement to earn TerraCycle points is 5 lbs. This means you must ship over 5 lbs to earn TerraCycle points in this program. By encouraging larger shipments through this program, we can help reduce fuel costs and create an even smaller environmental footprint. It's just one more way we can join together to make this program an even bigger win for the environment.

How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: PUR® pitchers, all types of PUR® filters, PUR® faucet filtration systems and adapters, PUR® packaging film, and PUR® dispensers

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 PUR® 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.
