Why Recycle Used Motor Oil & Filters?
Used oil is a hazardous waste that should never be put in the garbage or dumped in the storm drains or ground. Only ¼ gallon of motor oil can contaminate 250,000 gallons of water.
The Pleasant Hill curbside recycling program collects used oil and used oil filters from your home at the curb.
** Special Note:
The Mt. View Sanitary District Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility will take your used motor oil & oil filters.
