Used Filters

Used Filters


The maintenance of the main engines, of power generators implies the replacement of filters (oil filters, fuel filters, hydraulic filters, air filters).
Because of their polluting nature, these used filters are collected and stored by our means in airtight barrels and taken to authorised centres for their disposal.

Regarded as hazardous and subject to ADR (Road Transportation of Hazardous Materials), this waste is a risk for man and for the environment. That’s why the collection, storage and treatment of the waste must be entrusted to qualified and skilled professional technicians.

The traceability of the waste compels us to quite naturally carry out a strict follow-up from the collecting of the waste to its processing, in accordance with the applicable regulation. (Articles R 541-8 and R 541-12 and on in the Environment Code). Once the waste is collected, the Waste Tracking Slips (BSD / WTS) are issued for each type of waste, as well as a removal slip.
A copy is immediately handed over to the owner. This document will track the waste until its final destination, recovery or destruction / disposal.
