New law keeps oil filters and absorbents out of landfills

Starting January 1, 2011 used automotive engine oil filters and oil absorbent materials were banned from Wisconsin landfills.

No individual or group is exempt. The ban applies to everyone in the state including individuals, farmers, businesses, commercial or industrial facilities and other organizations.

*** Oil absorbent materials were originally included in the landfill ban, but 2011 Wisconsin Act 152 [exit DNR] amended the ban to allow disposal in the landfill as of March 23, 2012, provided there is no free-flowing oil in the absorbent material and the absorbents are not hazardous waste.
