Recycling motor oil

I see the problem right here, there's a guy passed out in your engine compartment.

If you change your vehicle’s oil yourself, what do you do with the used oil? My wife uses it for cooking but for those of you with discriminating palates, you have another option. Whatever you do don’t flush it down the toilet or dump it down the storm drain. You can get cash back for it or in most cases you can recycle it for FREE!

Where do you take it?: Most service stations accept used motor oil for free. You can find places to recycle your Motor Oil at www.RecyclerFinder.com or call your local municipality to get a list of drop off centers.

How to handle it: Store your used oil in a leak-proof container with a lid. Do not mix it with other liquids. Store it away from heat sources.

What happens to it?: Used motor oil can be recycled into heating fuel, lubricating oil and oil used to generate power in electric power plants. It is even processed back into motor oil you can use in your vehicle. In some communities, you can get paid for your used oil. In California, certified collection centers pay 40 cents per gallon and most will take up to five gallons at a time from the public. Again, you can find places to recycle your Motor Oil and get cash back at www.RecyclerFinder.com, or call your local municipality to get a list of drop off centers.

Once you begin recycling used motor oil from your car, lawnmower, boat or other motorized vehicle responsibly, it will become another part of your environmentally sensitive routine.
