Where they get you is that they aren't mandated to accept a used filter, so they charge $5 for this. But, we have a county recyling facility about 6 miles from my house which will accept the filters for free, so I take them there. I'd much rather risk a panic stop in traffic with a few plastic wrapped filters than 5 gal. of used oil in the back of my SUV...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
