|Used Oil and Filter Recycling|Help protect the environment by conserving a valuable resource. Motor oil poured onto the ground, into storm drains, or tossed into trash cans (even in a sealed container) can contaminate and pollute the soil, groundwater, streams, and rivers. Recycling your used motor oil reduces this pollution threat.
To make it easy for you, the Cities and County of Solano partner with your solid waste haulers and the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) to bring all Solano County residents with the option to recycle their used oil and filters through pickup at curbside or drop-off at a local certified collection center.
