How to Recycle Used Motor Oil
- Make sure you take the oil filter out of the car.
- Use a funnel to pour the used motor oil into an old milk jug or another container.
- Put a lid on it.
- Recycle at a drop-off point in your area
Do not reuse, reprocess, store in hot areas like garages for future use, mix with anything else or dispose of in sewers or storm drains.
The recycled used motor oil will be destroyed and turned into heat energy if deposited down drainpipes during winter months because it is heavily contaminated with anti-freeze.
