Oil Filters

  • Spin-on or element style oil filters used in hydraulic transmission or internal combustion engine applications
  • Diesel fuel filters
  • Household furnace fuel filters
  • Coolant filters
  • Storage tank diesel fuel filters
  • Sump-type automatic transmission filters
  • Plastic and paper element style filters
  • Diesel fuel filters used at retail and commercial pump islands

Why are Oil Filters in Orange Drop Program?

They contain amounts of used oil and must be properly handled to avoid leaching of used oil into the groundwater.

Find a Drop Site

  • Most municipal transfer stations and depots
  • Automotive collection sites at service centres and garages in your community
  • Use our search tool or check with your municipality for other drop-off locations and events such as Community Environment Days

Do I Need to Take Storage or Transport Precautions?

  • Place used oil filters in a sealed bag and take to a recycling facility or automotive collection site

What Happens to my Waste?

Residual oil is extracted and refined for re-use or recovered as a fuel source. The metal is crushed and recycled.

What
Happens to
my Waste?

The Orange Drop program safely manages four materials to end-of-life, diverting harmful substances from landfill and waterways. Many of the materials collected through the Orange Drop Program, such as pressurized containers are reprocessed, refurbished or reused to make new products—easing the demand for energy and virgin resources.

About Us

The four materials in the Orange Drop program are managed by Stewardship Ontario (pressurized containers) and Automotive Materials Stewardship (antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters).

Stewardship Ontario and Automotive Materials Stewardship are both not-for-profit organizations funded and governed by the industries that are the brand owners, first importers or franchisors of the products and packaging materials managed under our recycling programs.

At Orange Drop, we strive to find new ways to turn today’s waste into tomorrow’s consumer products.

Orange Drop no longer responsible for single-use batteries
Blog Post

June 30, 2020 - As of June 30, 2020, Orange Drop is no longer responsible for the management of single-use batteries. The program has transferred over to an individual producer model, as per direction from the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks. For more information on the new program and how to safely dispose of your batteries, please visit: https://rpra.ca/programs/batteries/. Please remember that batteries are dangerous if put in your recycling bin and should always be returned to a drop-off location.
