Oil Filters
Oil Filters help extend the life of our automotive engines by keeping motor oil free from sediment.

How do I go green?

Reduce

Walk, cycle, or car pool to cut down on motor oil use. Choose a push mower, which besides reducing motor oil use will exercise your body and reduce noise pollution.

Reuse

It is not recommended to clean and reuse an oil filter, as in all likelihood toxic oil will end up down the drain and contaminate our groundwater. The best way to reuse your oil filter is to recycle it.

Recycle

The recyclers below will accept your spent oil filters.   Also check out the BC Used Oil Management Association  website for listings of multiple recyclers in your area.

  • The Environmental Story

    The BC Used Oil Management Association  levies an Environmental Handling Charge (EHC) on the sale of motor oil filters, motor oil, and motor oil containers to help cover the cost of diverting these potentially toxic items from landfills or even worse, our waterways. Used oil filters will be shredded, heated to a molten state and reused as material in rebar, nails, or wire.
