Motor Oil – Used

Why recycle?

One gallon of used oil can ruin a million gallons of fresh water; a year’s supply of water for 50 people. Used oil should never be dumped in your yard (such as on blackberry brambles), down a storm drain, or in your garbage can.

How to recycle.

If you plan to haul the oil to a recycling drop-off site yourself, pour the used oil into a container with a secure lid for safe transporting to the drop-off site. Retail shops sell convenient reusable oil containers for this purpose. Never mix oil with other vehicle fluids, such as gasoline, solvents or antifreeze.

Where does it go next?

Since oil only gets dirty and never breaks down, it can be cleaned and reused at refineries or it can be blended and used as an alternative fuel source.
