Don't Dump in Trash or Down Drain
Used motor oil is a major contaminant of waterways, so never dump down the drain or in the trash. Filters also leak toxic materials into waterways, which are slow to break down in the environment.
Never Mix with Other Chemicals
Service stations will not accept motor oil that has been contaminated with other products like antifreeze. Don’t mix your motor oil with anything else.
Alternative Ways to Recycle
Take to Service Stations
The best way to recycle used motor oil and filters is to take them to a service station or auto shop. Find one that’s certified.
