WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
MagnaFlow customers who have recently replaced their OEM converters with a MF replacement are eligible to return their intact, OEM converters and receive a partial refund. To offer the best refund possible, the MagnaFlow Recycling for Refunds program is valid ONLY for qualifying OEM catalytic converters. While aftermarket catalytic converters do not qualify for this program, we’ll still recycle them for free. For more info, please click the eligibility button below.
Why Recycle with MagnaFlow?
As a national leader in producing aftermarket catalytic converters, we rely on three precious metals to help us create new product: Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium.
Our refunds program preserves precious metals resources by extracting these materials from old converters to be reintroduced into our supply chain. To express our gratitude for helping us create more sustainable products, we’ll pass on a portion of the value of the precious metals to you in the form of a MagnaFlow Visa® Prepaid Card. After installation of your new replacement part, simply ship us your old OEM part at no cost!*
As an EPA and CARB compliant manufacturer of catalytic converters, you can be confident that our recycling process meets all legal requirements unlike scrap companies that risk operating in a legal grey area. To offer the best refund possible, the MagnaFlow Recycling for Refunds program is valid ONLY for qualifying OEM catalytic converters. While aftermarket catalytic converters aren’t eligible for the program, we’ll still recycle them for free. For more info, please see our FAQ.

4-6 weeks from the time we receive your package.
You will receive your refund within 4-6 weeks after your returned converter is received at our facility. Refunds will be issued in the form of a MagnaFlow Visa® Prepaid Card and mailed to your preferred address.
PGM stands for Platinum Group Metals. Catalytic Converters contain 3 Platinum Group Metals: Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium. MagnaFlow recycles these metals and uses them to make new catalytic converters.
The value depends on PGM content of the converter, which is determined by year, make, and model of the vehicle it applies to, as well as the current market values of PGM. You can check to see the amount of your refund by finding your replacement converter and adding it to your cart.
It must be OEM, and most of the ceramic “brick” must be still inside of the metal body. See eligibility guide. For all eligibility requirements, see our Eligibility Guidelines.
No, every MagnaFlow replacement part purchased qualifies for 1 refund.
Due to the nature of catalytic converters and how they are used, all parts need to be inspected and qualified prior to issuing a refund.
Value is based on PGM market price at the time you decide to send us your old converter. MagnaFlow will determine the price refunded to you at the time you opt-in to the program.
MagnaFlow uses state-of-the-art recycling processes to reclaim the precious metals from old catalytic converters for use in the manufacturing of new converters, reducing the need to further deplete the Earth of these limited resources.
