Most times we dispose our oil filter when we feel it has served its purpose. This oil filters end up in trash cans, insunarators and sometimes litter in streets.
However, we underestimate the usefulness of these oil filters and that’s why it probably ends up being disposed after use.
Unknown to us that these oil filter we often dispose can ve recycled to serve some useful purposes.
According to a research by Lucas lane, statistics have shown that more than 500 million oil filters currently in use, 75,000 tons of scrap steel gets wasted along with over 9 million gallons of waste oil.
That steel can be used to make all manner of useful products (like cars) and the waste oil gets used to make asphalt for new roads. You are actively making your driving future better by recycling.
