The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works will host a free used motor oil and used oil filter recycling event at San Angelo Park, 245 San Angelo Avenue, on Saturday, May 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
In exchange for turning in their used oil, participants will be rewarded with free oil containers, oil filter containers, shop towels, and funnels while supplies last.
In addition, residents can drop-off used motor oil and used oil filters for free at weekend County-sponsored Household Hazardous Waste/Electronic Waste Collection Events or at local Certified Collection Centers. A full calendar of collection events and center locations can be found at www.CleanLA.com.
Residents are asked to prepare items for drop-off by placing used oil filters in sealed plastic bags and storing used motor oil in leak-proof containers without mixing the oil with other liquids, including water.
