Why Is it Important to Recycle Used Oil Filters?

The problem with used oil filters is that they quickly fill up our landfills and eventually leak into the water supply.

We are facing a growing problem. With an ever-increasing population, waste will keep piling up and become unmanageable soon enough.

These essential components are designed to filter dirt and unwanted substances out of oil when it is used. They need changing periodically but can be recycled – so there is no need to throw them away and let them go to landfill. 

Car oil filters are just one of the car components we recycle when you scrap your car with Recycle A Car.

Recycling Used Oil Filters

Used oil filters are a byproduct of the oil refining process. They are made from metal, and can be recycled in a variety of ways. The metal is usually recycled by smelting it down and producing new metal from the old.

The recycling process for used oil filters is not very different from other types of metal, but there are some important differences to take into consideration. One major difference is that used oil filters have a high level of toxicity due to their time spent being exposed to engine oils and chemicals. For this reason, they need to be handled with care when they are being recycled.
