How do the oil change places, mechanic shops, and dealers dispose of their used oil filters? Is it sent to a hazardous waste disposal, junk yard, or does someone pick it up for recycling? Could anyone share the fees associated with disposing of the old filters?

At that price I'm just wondering if even Amsoil wouldn't be cheaper?

Behind the Hyundai-VW dealer here they have a specific dumpster that contains nothing but used oil filters. With a big warning sign stating not to put anything else in there. Kind of cool looking in there, eh.

It probably varies state by state. I give used oil to local indy, they use it for heating.

This thread is about used filters. Used oil is easy to get rid of.

Cut them open, let them drain, use the can & base plate for scrap, burn the media as a wood stove fire starter. Pull the center tube out of the ash & scrap that too!

AutoZone in Wisconsin told me they just throw them away. I usually try to burn them if I can.

You read my mind:)

I give the old oil from filters to a metalcasting friend as he fires with waste motor oil. If i am lazy i just crush the filter at work smile

At my shop I pay for waste filters to get disposed of, most of what the disposal fee covers. Usually around 85$ for a 55 gallon drum pickup full of filters.
