Water filters cannot be recycled as part of your recycling collection scheme nor at Staffordshire's recycling centres. However, if you use a BRITA branded water filter you can recycle the used filters at most Argos, Robert Dyas and Homebase stores where boxes are provided for the collection of used cartridges. For other water filter brands please contact the manufacturer to find out if they offer a recycling service.
If the manufacturer does not offer a recycling service water filters can be placed in your kerbside general waste bin or brought to any of Staffordshire's recycling centres and placed in the general waste skip. General waste is sent to one of Staffordshire's energy recovery plants.
