From our hazardous waste manager:
Yes, that is what our shops do with them. In specific cases, such as hoods used for beryllium or other highly toxic metal dusts, we have instructed shops to bag and tag them as hazardous waste.
Just retain any test results in your files as documentation.

I would like your advice: If you have filters (such as for ductless fume hoods) that have been tested and determined to be below the TCLP (toxicity characteristic leaching procedure), i.e. non-hazardous waste, how do you dispose of them? Regular trash?
