Check Your Local Recycling Options
Used oil filters are becoming more commonly accepted in local recycling programs. In many cases, the used oil collection facilities where you take your used motor oil may also accept used oil filters for recycling. If they do not, and you cannot find a location on Earth 911, consult with your local used oil collection facility to see if they can direct you to a location or business that provides this service.
If you don't have access to a local recycling program for used oil filters, check with your local municipal recycling coordinator or solid waste department for recommended disposal options. Remember - regardless of how you recycle the used oil filter, you should drain the used oil out of the oil filter first.
