Motor Oil and Filters

Recycle Used Oil Filters graphic To recycle used motor oil and filters, collect the oil in a reusable container with a tight-fitting lid and drain and collect the oil from the filter.  Please take precautions to prevent spills and protect yourself.

Oil and Filter Recycling Options:

  • Ask your local automotive service station about acceptance;
  • Call your local Public Works Department to ask about the curbside collection or a municipal drop off location;
  • Bring the oil and filter(s) to the Sanitary Landfill or the Transfer Station for a fee. When entering a CMCMUA facility always stop at the scale house and please drive slowly and carefully.

Cost:

CMCMUA will accept up to five (5) gallons per day of used motor oil and up to five (5) used motor oil filters per day from county residents for a fee.
