Used Oil Filters and Absorbents

Used Oil Filters and Absorbents Landfill Ban

2009 Wisconsin Act 86 [PDF exit DNR] bans the landfilling of used oil filters and absorbents as of January 1, 2011.

The ban applies to everyone in the state, including individuals, farmers, businesses, commercial or industrial facilities, and other organizations. The law does not exempt any groups or classes of individuals.

The ban covers two types of materials: used oil filters and used oil absorbent materials.

Used Oil Filters

The ban specifically covers filters from motor vehicles. These include oil filters from:

  • cars
  • trucks
  • buses
  • motorcycles
  • snowmobiles
  • forklifts
  • tractors
  • ATVs and UTVs

Oil filters from other sources, like hydraulic systems and other machinery are not covered under this ban, but we encourage them to be recycled as well.

Used Oil Absorbent Materials

The oil absorbent ban includes materials used to absorb petroleum-derived or synthetic oil that has been used or spilled.

All types of materials used to absorb or contain waste oil are covered under the ban, including:

  • granular kitty litter-type absorbents
  • oil-dry cloths
  • rags
  • wipes
  • paper toweling
  • absorbent pillows, pads and socks

An exception is made in the ban to allow the disposal of up to one gallon of oil absorbent materials from a non-routine spill. A gallon of material is the amount that would fit inside a dry gallon container.

Non-routine spills may include oil that is released when a seal is broken, or when oil is accidentally spilled. Routine spills may include oil that leaks continually while a machine is operating, or oil that leaks each time a frequently repeated operation occurs (such as dismantling a car).

What Should I Do With My Used Oil Filters and Absorbents

Recycling is the preferred method of handling used oil filters and absorbents. Wisconsinites throw away an estimated 187,000 gallons of oil in used oil filters and 1.6 million gallons of oil in oil absorbents. Oil is a valuable, reusable material. Recycling used filters and absorbents preserves oil for reuse.

Used Oil Filters Used Oil Absorbents
  • Recycle: Many businesses that perform oil changes or sell oil and oil filters will accept used filters from do-it-yourselfers. In addition, some communities allow used oil and oil filters to be collected at their waste transfer stations or at specific collection sites. Contact your local recycling program for more information.
  • Several recyclers across the state also accept used oil filters for recycling. To find recycling options in your area, see the Wisconsin Recycling Markets Directory, select the “Motor Vehicle Items” category, and then subcategory “oil filters.”
  • Use as a fuel supplement in an approved municipal solid waste combustor.
  • Recycle: Some companies that supply clean absorbents will accept those absorbents after they have been used. To find recycling options in your area, see the Wisconsin Recycling Markets Directory, select the “Other Materials” category, and then subcategory “oil absorbents.”
  • Take to a DNR-approved biopile at a landfill.
  • Use as a fuel supplement in an approved municipal solid waste combustor.
  • Dispose of at a landfill if less than one gallon absorbent material from a non-routine spill.
  • Cloth absorbents should be reused as long as possible and may be sent to a landfill after being cleaned to established industry standards to remove the oil.
