Can I throw used oil filters into my regular garbage?

Category: Groundwater
No. They should be completely drained of any free flowing oil (preferably “hot drained” and crushed). Place them into a weather tight container marked "Used Oil Filters". They can be hauled to an approved facility and disposed there, or you can contract with a specialty transporter to have them hauled to an appropriate facility.  Maintain a disposal receipt at your facility.
