How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

When you are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking "Ship us your waste" and follow the prompts. Your shipping label will be emailed to your inbox. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by calling UPS at 1-800-PICK-UPS, and schedule a pick up for the next business day.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: PUR® pitchers, all types of PUR® filters, PUR® faucet filtration systems and adapters, and PUR® packaging film.

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure the products and packaging are completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the PUR® products and packaging are separated by composition and shredded to make new recycled products. The carbon filters are separated for use in polymers. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
