Why Recycle Used 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 cans (even in a sealed container) can contaminate and pollute the soil, groundwater, streams, and rivers. Recycling your used motor oil reduces this pollution threat. When you take your used oil to a certified center for recycling, you are protecting the environment, conserving a valuable resource, and getting paid for it.

Used Oil Facts:

  • Each year 200 million gallons of used oil are disposed of improperly. 2
  • One gallon of used oil can ruin a million gallons of drinking water.3
  • Federal reports show that used motor oil results in over 40% of the total oil pollution of U.S. waterways and harbors. 3
  • Recycling two gallons of oil can generate enough electricity to run an average household for nearly 24 hours. 2
  • To produce 2.5 quarts of new, high-quality oil it takes only one gallon of used oil yet it takes 42 gallons of crude oil. 2

About the Certified Centers

The Integrated Waste Management Board encourages the recycling of used motor oil by certifying used oil recycling collection centers throughout the State. Certified Used Oil Collection Centers will take used motor oil from the public and will pay you $0.16 a gallon. Most centers will take up to five gallons at a time.
What is Contaminated Oil?
Certified center managers will not accept used motor oil that has been contaminated with other fluids such as antifreeze, solvents, gasoline, or water. So please, don't mix your used oil with anything. However, if your used oil accidentally gets contaminated, your certified center manager can tell you where to take it for proper disposal.
