Brita and Pur water filters

Brita, Pur and other filters for water pitchers and faucets are not recyclable in L.A.'s blue bin because the filters are made from mixed materials. Pur does not have a take-back program, but Brita has a partnership with the eco-product company Preserve to recycle its water pitcher filters. Preserve recommends that the filters be dried by shaking off the excess water and setting them in a dry location for a minimum of three days, then wrapping the filters in a plastic grocery bag, placing the bag in a box and mailing the filters to the company in New York. It also recommends that several filters be shipped at once. Arcadia: No Burbank: No Irvine: No Long Beach: No Riverside: No Santa Ana: No Santa Monica: No Torrance: No
