  • When you are ready for a pickup, please call us at (707) 255-5200 for an appointment, so the drivers will look for your oil container set next to your recycling cart. Pickup will be on your regular collection day.

How to Change Your Motor Oil & Filter for Recycling:

Step 1: Drain motor oil into a drain pan. Drain your oil filter for 24 hours. It can hold up to a quart of oil!

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.

Did You Know?

What Happens to Recycled Motor Oil

Used motor oil can be cleaned and recycled, which helps keep it out of waterways. Recycled oil is then used to make heating oil, asphalt and other petroleum-based products. It is usually not recycled and resold as motor oil.
