Ugh, I know. We don't even have a municipal recycling program, we have to pay for permits to recycle with a commercial recycler-- who only accepts #1 and #2 plastics.
I'm a member of Green America, and their newsletter just had a piece about the Gimme 5 program from Recycline and Whole Foods-- they will accept your #5 plastics, including Brita pitcher filters. http://www.preserveproducts.com/gimme5/
and www.recycline.com
More here on Brita filter recycling:
www.takebackthefilter.org
I guess the best action for us to take would be to try to limit the plastic packaging by shopping selectively, and being vocal to companies to stop using the more harmful plastics, and to our towns to expand their recycling programs.
