Each year California generates 67 million used automotive filters per year. The filters are considered hazardous waste and are banned from landfills, however, they are also completely recyclable.  Each filter has about a pound of re-usable steel. All the filters sold annually in California can be recycled into 67 million pounds of steel, enough to build three large sports stadiums.

Bring those used filters to O’Reilly Auto Parts to get them recycled for FREE!
