Did You Know?
“Used oil from one oil change can contaminate one million gallons of fresh water — a years’ supply for 50 people!
  • Used motor oil is insoluble, persistent and can contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals.
  • It’s slow to degrade.
  • It sticks to everything from beach sand to bird feathers.
  • It’s a major source of oil contamination of waterways and can result in pollution of drinking water sources.”

“Recycled used motor oil can be re-refined into new oil, processed into fuel oils and used as raw materials for the petroleum industry.

If all the oil from American do-it-yourself oil changers were recycled, it would be enough motor oil for more than 50 million cars a year. Imagine how much foreign oil that would eliminate!

Used motor oil from cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, farm equipment and lawnmowers can be recycled and re-refined.”
