Don't Throw Away That Oil Filter
Wisconsin environmental officials are reminding people they can't throw oil filters and oil absorbents into landfills any more.
Randy Nederlo of the Lacrosse County Solid Waste Department says a new law banning disposal of used automotive oil filters and oil absorbent materials in landfills took effect on January 1st.
The ban includes everyone in the state, from homeowners and farmers to businesses and industrial operations. Violators will face fines ranging from $50 to $2,000.
