Motor Oil Recycling


The Problem

Used motor oil contains toxic substances such as benzene, lead, zinc, and cadmium that can harm humans and wildlife.

The Solution

Used oil can be made back into lubricating oils that meet the same specifications as motor oil created from new materials. Recycling used oil would save the United States 1.3 million barrels of oil per day.

Residents of Allen County who change the oil in their own vehicles can help to conserve energy and protect the environment by taking used motor oil to one of the following collection facilities:
