Oil Filter Crusher Vendors
Local governments should keep in mind that most used oil filter haulers charge by the drum to recycle filters. The average 55-gallon collection drum may contain between 200 and 250 filters, depending on the size of the filters. A 55-gallon drum can hold around 400 crushed filters, thus reducing hauling costs by nearly one-half. Also, crushing extracts the oil still held in the filters, so you can generate more income from the sale of used motor oil.
For pricing and availability of oil filter crushers, you may wish to compare prices among vendors. Contact your local auto parts provider and check the Internet for companies who manufacture and/or sell crushers.
