Used oil filters should be punctured on the dome top and drained while hot. Capture the oil that drains from the filter and consolidate it with other motor oil. Once the filter is drained, it can be disposed of with scrap metal or in the trash. Oil filters cannot be recycled in household recycling. Disposal is also available, for a fee, at the Regional Hazardous Waste Collection Sites at the Colrain and Conway transfer staions. They may be accepted by some auto repair shops.
