FREE Used Oil Recycling
Motor oil should NEVER be poured onto the ground, into storm drains, or tossed into trash cans (even in a sealed container). One gallon of used motor oil can contaminate 1 million gallons of fresh water—a year’s supply of water for 50 people.1 Recycling used motor oil conserves resources and protects our soil, groundwater, streams, and rivers.
The City of El Centro provides a FREE curbside used oil collection program through CR&R. The City will provide containers and will pick up used motor oil and filters for recycling. To schedule a pickup, please contact CR&R at 760-482-5656.
