This is what they do with all of those old oil filters!

For most people, after they wrap up their oil change every couple thousand miles, they hopefully dispose of their old oil and filter in a way that is friendly to the environment and at this point, for most, the materials are out of sight and out of mind forever.

For the guys who are responsible for recycling old oil filters, this is just where their job begins and while it might seem like a minuscule step in the massive job that is keeping me environment safe, as this video shows you, it all adds up and it does so rather quickly.

In this video, we are taken inside of the process that puts the old filters and oil inside of them to use again. They explain that, if it weren’t for this process, the 500 million oil filters manufactured and used yearly that bear 75,000 tons of steel that they are made of and 9,000,000 gallons of oil that they contain would all simply go to waste and harm the environment.

Play through the video below that will teach you a thing or two about how the process is carried out to bring these materials back to life again and what good it can do when your used up remnants of an oil change are put through the proper processes to be done away with after their usefulness has run out.
