New Program Makes It a Snap to Recycle Refrigerator Water Filters

July 08, 2011

GE Appliances & Lighting has introduced its new refrigeration water filter recycling program. The initiative is designed to recycle 100 percent of the refrigerator water filter. The plastic part of the product is “pelletized” and reused, while the charcoal filter is reused in landfill liners that help prevent substances from leaching into local water supplies.
 
“Given the hundreds of thousands of GE refrigerator water filters currently in service, GE feels a responsibility to help consumers in minimizing their environmental impact by providing a simple method to responsibly recycle their used GE water filters,” said Laura Edwards, GE parts sales and marketing operations manager.
 
When ordering a replacement water filter from GE, consumers will receive a free recycling kit for the used GE water filter. The kit includes a pre-paid mailing label and envelope to make replacing a water filter even easier. Applicable filters include models MWF, MSWF, MXRC and GSWF.
