Used Oil Filter Exchange Events

Used Oil Filter Exchange Events

Each year California generates 67 million used automotive filters per year. 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.

If you're a Do-It-Yourselfer, consider taking advantage of our filter exchange events. You'll dispose of and recycle your filter the right way and you'll walk away with a brand newfreefilter, it's a win-win!
