What is the best practise for handling, storing and diposing paint booth filter waste?

We had our filters tested and found that they did not meet the criteria of a Hazardous Waste. We then tested them for classification as an Industrial or Special Waste, they were not. Note that our filters were completely dry and had no odor. We even tried to burn them and found that they would not burn. Our conclusion was that they are a standard municipal waste according to the applicable regulations. We did notify the waste disposal site of this determination prior to sending them and checked with the authorities. Prior to disposal you should do a thorough analysis and then check with the MOE for your province. Each jurisdition is a little different. We adopted this process by looking at what the most restictive area we operated in, (California), required.
