If you plan to do oil filters recycling, please take few minutes to read below tips.
Recycle Your Used Oil Filters
If you change your own motor oil, you’re changing your oil filter at the same time. Take the last step and recycle the oil filter along with the used oil. Here’s more information on why oil filter recycling is important, and where you can take your oil filters.
Why recycle oil filters?
Used Oil filters contain 10 ounces of used oil and therefore a hazardous waste and must be properly recycled - not thrown in the trash.
Oil filters contain used oil and steel, both are valuable nonrenewable resources.
Oil filter recycling is good for the environment and easy to do.
Each year California generates 67 million used automotive filters per year. The filters are considered hazardous waste and are banned from landfills, however, they are also completely recyclable. Each filter has about a pound of re-usable steel. All the filters sold annually in California can be recycled into 67 million pounds of steel, enough to build three large sports stadiums.
In addition to recycling steel, it’s important to recycle oil filters because each oil filter has on average, more than 10 fluid ounces of used motor oil, even after draining! All of this trapped motor oil adds up to more than two million gallons of used oil going into the environment, the water system or into landfills in California each year from filters that aren’t properly recycled. Oil recovered from the recycled filters is made back into motor oil, closing the loop.
