If your business changes filters frequently, or runs equipment with numerous filters, you know that the cost of disposing old filters when you install replacement filters can be high. Depending on the size and shape of the old filters, you may need to hire a contractor to bring in a dumpster and remove them. How can you lower the costs of disposing old filters when installing replacement filters?
Consider Changing Filter Types
Filters with rigid frames take up a lot of room, both for storage and disposal. Consider changing to filter media, which are easier to compact. You can either fit more inside an industrial dumpster (and reduce the number of times you have to get the dumpster emptied) or discard them using more cost-effective methods.
Switch to Longer-Life Filters
Some businesses can switch to longer-life filters so that they need replacement filters less often. If you replace filters less frequently, you dispose of old filters less frequently.
Use Filters You Can Clean
You may be able to switch to types of filters that can be cleaned, rather than replaced. Depending on what’s being filtered through the system, you may be able to replace one or more filters with reusable filters that can be cleaned periodically rather than replaced.
Homeowners using replacement filters in residential HVAC systems should consider recycling old filters to reduce disposal costs and environmental impact.
