Fuel Filter

Why Recycle

Fuel filters are commonly disposed as a hazardous waste due to their ignitability and toxicity characteristics.

To prepare for recyling

Remove the filter and drain it for 24-hours. For safety reasons, fuel filters should not be crushed in oil filter crushers or punctured. Place the drained filter into a leak-proof container (coffee can with lid or plastic bag or bucket that can be sealed) for safe transporting to a drop-off site.

Where does it go next?

Fuel filters can be recycled as scrap metal just like oil filters
