Brita Water Filter Recycling Program

UK Vending Ltd’s partnership with Brita collected use water filters which are dismantled and the various components re-used.

The plastic casing is first shredded on site and then collected by partner companies. They clean and separate the plastic and grind it into granules. The plastics industry can then use this to produce new plastic parts.

The activated carbon is returned to activated carbon suppliers. They reprocess it and use it again for various filter processes, for example, in wastewater treatment

In our own plant, the ion exchanger is regenerated and added to new filter cartridges. This means that new BRITA filter cartridges can contain regenerated ion exchangers – with the same quality and performance. That is truly sustainable!

Certified: BRITA's bio-based plastic
Bio-based plastics are made entirely or partially from renewable, biological sources such as crops and plants. We only use bio-based plastic that has been certified by the globally recognised ISCC PLUS label (mass balance approach), and we ensure that our bio-based plastic comes from sources that do not compete with food production.
Mass balance is a method in which bio-based materials are mixed with fossil materials during the production process and then added to the final product. In this way, we significantly reduce our carbon footprint and the consumption of conventional plastic.
