Used Motor Oil
Did you know that used motor oil never wears out? It just gets dirty and can be recycled, cleaned, and used again. Recycling used motor oil conserves a natural resource (oil) and is good for the environment too! Motor oil poured onto the ground or into storm drains, or tossed into trash can (even in a sealed container) can contaminate and pollute the soil, groundwater, streams and rivers (and it's illegal!). Recycling your used motor oil reduces this pollution threat. When you take your used motor oil to a certified center for recycling or even the drop-off centers, you are protecting the environment and conserving a valuable resource. That's a winning combination!
Dumping waste antifreeze is illegal as it contains heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and chromium in high enough levels to make it a regulated hazardous waste! A hazardous waste may never be dumped on land or discharged into a sanitary sewer, storm drain, ditch, dry well or septic system. Recycling antifreeze is cost-effective: it's less expensive than virgin antifreeze; Recycling antifreeze saves resources: ethylene glycol is produced from natural gas, a non-renewable resource.
