FB Oil Event Ad 1 1200x628

Do you change your own motor oil? If so, get a FREE oil filter of comparable cost when you recycle your used one!

Davis residents can recycle a used oil filter at O'Reilly Auto Parts store in Davis during normal business hours on Saturday, April 28 and receive a new, comparable one for free! Limit 2 per resident, while supplies last. New filter must be comparable in quality and cost to the used oil filter brought in. Open to Davis residents only. Exchange open during normal business hours.

Each year California generates 67 million used automotive filters per year. The filters are considered hazardous waste and are banned from landfills, but they are also completely recyclable. Each filter has about a pound of re-usable steel. Before it is drained, an oil filter can contain over a pint of used oil. Oil doesn't wear out, it just gets dirty. That means it can be re-refined over and over again. So, when changing your oil, recycle it and don't forget the filter!

The filter exchange event is made possible by a grant from CalRecycle.
