Are you a DIYer? Do you do your own oil changes on your vehicles? Did you know Waste Management of Woodland offers curbside used oil collection services - and it’s free!
Contact Waste Management to request an oil collection jug and an oil filter bag to be dropped off at your residence for used oil curbside collection. Once the filter bag and oil jug are full, set them both next to your recycle bin on your regular pick-up day to be emptied and returned to you.
If you prefer to take in your own oil and filter, here are the collections centers in Woodland (please call ahead for quantity limits and filter acceptance):
Did you know that most car makers suggest more than 3 months or 3,000 miles in between oil changes? Following the 3,000-mile myth generates millions of gallons of unnecessary waste oil every year, which can pollute California’s natural resources. Oil doesn’t wear out, it just gets dirty! Recycling your car’s used motor oil turns it into re-refined oil, which uses less energy than new oil production and is an environmentally beneficial method of managing used oil. Used oil goes through the same process as crude oil and must pass the same tests as virgin oil. Visit the websites below for more information on re-refined oil.
