I don't understand why recycling in general isn't enforced, esp since we have proof of how much trash / plastic ends up in the ocean.

There should be recycling bins EVERYWHERE there's a trash bin.


Usually: because it is a money pit.

Yea but recycable materials are worth money. So it's technically worth the effort vs just having it go to the dump.

The government / cities should be in charge of this operation. It's in their interest to recycle and keep the city cleaner.

Sharpen a nail on a grinder and put it in your oil change kit.

Punch two holes in the used oil filter; one to drain the filter, the other to let it vent. You'd be surprised at the amount of oil trapped by the filter element. I'd say it's about a cup's worth.

That's what I do.

Since they're located in Berks County, I'll look up where I might recycle my old filters.

nice post, makes it worth recycling, Local WM said they take them and recycle. They used to drain and then dump in landfill but local pressure got them on the recycle band wagon.

Walmart customers recycle a lot of oil filters.
You can find them on the shelf in the boxes that held new filters and those boxes were then used to return the used ones.

If I worked at a Walmart and encountered someone doing that I'd talk real loud and embarrass the dickens out the offender (if that is possible).

"Oh no sir, you see here. This is your old filter and retuning it would constitute theft and fraud." "Can I trust you to take this to a recycling center or are you the kind of malicious dog that would throw this somewhere in the store?"

Anybody who does something like who isn't ABJECTLY POOR should be forced into "class training" because they have none.

That 75,000 tons of scrap steel could be sharply reduced if automakers would spend the money to equip their engines with cartridge filter systems.

That's why I always look inside the box! Regardless of where it's purchased. It seems this goes on everywhere.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

I wouldn't be surprised if some day they charge extra for filters (CRV... core) to try and get more returned used filters.

But recycling usually costs MORE.
