How to Recycle Brita Filters

Brita filters can be brought to drop-off containers in the Framingham, Boston, or Cambridge Whole Foods locations or mailed at the mailer’s expense to Preserve at Perserve Gimme5, 823 NYS Rte 13, Cortland, NY 13045. Shake the excess water from each filter, put into a plastic bag, and mail via ground shipping. Preserve recycles the plastic into new items like toothbrushes and cups. The other materials in the filters will be ‘regenerated for alternative use or converted into energy’, according to their website.
