What do you do with old filters for masks?

Filters for masks... once they are worn, what do you do with them? You can wash reusable masks, but not filters, surely? It would make sense to throw them out, but is this the best way to dispose of them?

    Don't know what kind of filters you are asking about. Please give the Brand and model of the type of mask you are asking about.

    If the filter is just a simple paper or cloth element, my offhand opinion is that they could be disposed of by including in the household rubbish.

    However, depending on the material and/or metals, rubber, sealing devices, disinfectant coating it might be prohibited and the only legal and safe way to dispose of it MIGHT be to put it in some form of HAZARDOUS material collection.
