Recycling water filters

Water filters cannot be recycled as part of your recycling collection scheme nor at household waste recycling centres. However, if you use a BRITA branded water filter you can recycle the used filters at most Argos, Homebase and Robert Dyas stores where boxes are provided for the collection of used cartridges.

To find your nearest participating store, visit the BRITA website.

For other water filter brands, please contact the manufacturer to find out if they provide a similar service. If the manufacturer is unable to accept them, old filters can be disposed of with your normal rubbish collection in your grey bin or in the landfill container at household waste recycling centres.
