How to Recycle DPFs and DOCs from Pickup Trucks

on March 4, 2022

We constantly get questions on how to recycle Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs) from individual diesel-powered pickup trucks. Whether you have one or hundreds, this article and video should help you find reputable recyclers.

Across the U.S., local scrap yards and recyclers work with individuals to buy and recycle single DPFs and DOCs from pickup trucks.

Key Takeaways:

  • Most DPF and DOC parts are worth far more than scrap metal ($0.10/pound for scrap metal vs. $5/pound for a DPF and $20/pound for a DOC)
  • Red Fox Resources does not work with individuals or pay cash for scrap parts
  • Red Fox Resources only works with businesses to recycle 15 or more parts per lot
  • Some recyclers work with and recycle individual pickup truck DPFs and DOCs (see below)
