Fuel Filter: disposal recommendations
A used fuel filter is classified as hazardous waste as it contains petroleum products, phenol-formaldehyde resins, etc. Incorrect storage, transportation or processing of an old part can cause serious damage to the environment if the toxic substances it contains enter the atmosphere, soil, or groundwater. Please note! Failure to comply with environmental, health, and safety requirements when handling production and consumption waste can lead to a fine or other penalty, up to and including criminal prosecution.
  • Consumer disposal options
    Products that have lost their useful properties must be handed over to a specialised hazardous waste management service or a garage. Disposal with household waste is prohibited.
  • Industrial disposal regulations
    The collection and disposal of hazardous waste is carried out in accordance with the provisions of the List of Wastes Regulations of 2005 and the Waste Framework Directive 75/442/EEC.
