Are there other facilities where I may drop-off my used motor oil?
Most service stations, repair facilities, and quick lubes will accept used oil without charge.  A good source for local collection center information is Earth 911, which identifies collection centers in your area by zip code.

What happens if I don't recycle?
Improperly disposed of used oil can end up in landfills, sewers, back yards, or storm drains. In all of these cases, soil, groundwater and even drinking water may be contaminated. Used oil poured down your sewer line can damage your community's water treatment system - contaminating your drinking water and costing you money. In most areas improper disposal of used oil is a crime.
