1. Take the old oil filter and make a hole in end of the filter that slightly sticks out.  Drain the oil into a container. To really make use of that oil put it with the other oil you are going to take to be recycled at the nearest oil changing business.
  2. Let the filter dry over night after it is empty of oil. It may take more or less time to dry out so whenever it is done, you can take it in to be recycled.
  3. Used filters can be given to the same oil changing facilities that also take used oil for recycling.
