Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit Green Works Expands Used Oil Filter Recycling

Community News

 

Green Works, a subsidiary business under Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit, has expanded its used oil filter recycling program to now include a collection service in partnership with Green Arbor Environmental.

Green Works’ used oil filters recycling service now offers a “milk run” style pick-up service of both used oil filters and used motor oil from metro Detroit quick change/oil change shops and automotive dealerships. The operation of two Oberg SB-600 oil filter crushers allows Goodwill’s Green Works to process up to 400 tons of filters per month.

Green Works and Flip the Script Program Support People with Employment Challenges 

In keeping with Goodwill Detroit’s mission to support and employ people with employment challenges, Green Works, along with the organization’s Flip the Script program, has trained several of the region’s returning citizens to operate the Oberg SB-600, which will result in multiple shifts of uninterrupted operation and the creation of additional new jobs.

“Our catalog of services at Green Works is designed to provide support to businesses that prioritize cost-effective, environmentally sustainable practices,” said Jay Wilber, president, Goodwill’s Green Works.

“The oil filter recycling program began nearly four years ago servicing customers from Michigan’s neighboring states of Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio. The addition of the pick-up convenience will allow more local auto care providers, along with those throughout the region, to keep their steel and oil waste from being disposed in landfills, which is one of our primary goals.”
