An affordable and convenient way to dispose of used or leftover motor oil, as well as oil filters, antifreeze and auto batteries, is to take them to a used oil and oil filter collection event.
These periodic recycling events are made possible by the City's annual receipt of a Used Oil Recycling Block Grant from the Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). CalRecycle funds the collection of motor oil and oil filters.
When participating in a used oil and oil filter recycling program, please remember the following:
Search for a location to recycle used oil and oil filters in your neighborhood at Calrecycle.ca.gov/UsedOIl/Reports/CenterSearch.
