You’re a bit of a do-it-yourselfer and you’ve got half a dozen used oil filters kicking around your garage. Not because you’re a collector, but because you don’t know what to do with them. You know they shouldn’t go in the garbage because they’ll end up sitting in a landfill site

Now you can return these materials to your local Municipal Recycling Facility, to a collection event or an automotive collection site in your community. Make the Drop! – and we’ll do the rest. Residual oil in your used oil filters can be recovered and recycled into good-as-new motor oil, and the steel recycled for use in other steel products, which conserves resources, saves energy and reduces the amount of waste in landfill.

What's included?

You can bring back filters used directly or as part of a product or piece of equipment such as spin-on or element style filter in hydraulic, transmission or internal combustion engine applications, e.g., diesel fuel filters; household furnace fuel filters; coolant filters; storage tank diesel fuel filters; sump-type automatic transmission filters; plastic or paper element style filters; diesel fuel filters used at retail and commercial pump islands.

Did you know? Despite the increase in long-lasting oil filters, which reduces the number of oil changes and filters needed, it’s estimated that Ontarians will generate 9,345 metric tonnes of used oil filters in 2010. Recycling just 70% of these would yield about 5,560 tonnes or steel or about one-half tonne more than total steel used to construct the CN Tower.

It's time to Make the Drop – Orange drop!
