Shock Absorber: disposal recommendations
The hazardous waste content of the used part depends on its design and condition. For example, a used shock absorber may contain synthetic hydraulic oil (EWC 13 01 11), a hazardous pollutant affecting almost all sectors of the environment.
  • Consumer disposal options
    The component must be disposed of according to the regulations for sorting metal waste and only after removing oil residues.
  • Industrial disposal regulations
    The collection, storage, and disposal are carried out by specialist companies according to the regulatory requirements for this type of waste.
