Oil Filter: disposal recommendations
A used oil filter 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.
  • Industrial disposal regulations
    A used oil filter can be returned to the seller (free of charge), or handed over to a garage or to a specialised service. Disposing of the part with household waste is strictly prohibited!
