Recycling Used Oil Filters at Home

Author: Steel Recycling Institute

When changing your own oil, be sure to recycle the used oil filter. It was not long ago that used oil filters were thrown in the trash, but now, because of their steel content, we know they are recyclable. Some states have banned used oil filters from the landfill, while others have placed restrictions on how they can be discarded. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires used oil filters be drained of all free-flowing oil before they are discarded or recycled, all in the interest of protecting the environment and your local community. As a responsible do-it-yourself home mechanic who changes your own oil and oil filter, you can help protect the environment too.
