The department is encouraging residents to bring in their used motor oil and used oil filters for recycling. Throughout the event, when a resident brings a used oil filter to recycle, O’Reilly Auto Parts will provide a new, complimentary oil filter.
They will also be providing other functional items such as oil filter containers, towels and funnels.
Recycling used oil is a highly important step that drivers can take in order to protect and save the environment. Doing so keeps the oil from polluting soil and water, especially since motor oil is incapable of wearing out and disintegrating.
