Take the last step! Recycle your USED MOTOR OIL and OIL FILTERS!
• Dumping used oil (or any chemical) is a crime – legally and environmentally
• Dumped oil contaminates ground water – our drinking water source

Remember when recycling oil to
• Drain your oil from cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, recreational vehicles, lawnmowers, etc., into a reusable, sealable container.
