Recycle Your Used Motor Oil and Filters



Oil & Oil Filter Recycling

Recycling used motor oil conserves energy and natural resources. Oil can be re-refined for reuse as motor oil or as fuel for ships. Oil filters, which are up to 80% steel, can also be recycled into useful products such as rebar and utility hole covers. It's up to you to make sure used oil and oil filters reach a recycling facility and don't pollute our environment.

Customers may properly dispose of used motor oil weekly by simply scheduling a pick up by calling Republic Services at 1-800-299-4898. Service will occur in conjunction with regular refuse collection. Used oil containers must be tightly sealed, and filters must be completely drained and placed in a sealable zip lock bag. Upon collection of used motor oil, Republic Services will leave an empty container for future uses. Republic Services can also provide containers upon request or individuals may pick up containers from the City's Public Works Office located at 4722 Manhattan Beach Blvd.
