Do-it-yourselfers can exchange oil filters

By
From page A7 | June 01, 2012 |

Do you change your own oil? Come to any O’Reilly’s Auto Parts or AutoZone Store in Davis, Woodland or West Sacramento on Saturday, June 23, for a free filter exchange!

Bring in any used oil filter for recycling and receive a new oil filter for free. There’s a limit of two per resident.

Thanks to a grant from CalRecycle, Davis residents also can come to the Davis O’Reilly Auto Parts Store, 1681 Research Park Drive, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day and receive free oil drain pans, funnels, shop rags and cardboard mats.

If you or someone you know is moving, please consider donating unwanted items instead of throwing them away. There are many places in Davis where you can bring your stuff for reuse. The SPCA Thrift Store, All Things Right & Relevant and R&R Thrift Store all take previously owned items for reuse.

Check out the city of Davis Recyclopedia online at DavisRecycling.org for places to reuse and recycle more than 200 items, including refrigerators, clothing, home décor and furniture.

Please help keep our city beautiful and be responsible as you are moving. Do not leave unwanted furniture and other household items in the street or on the sidewalk. It’s against the law and it’s a safety hazard for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Please note that it is also a violation of the Davis municipal code to leave indoor furniture in front of your property in public view, such as couches in the front yard. Such code violations may be reported at (530) 757-5646 or on request for code investigation form at CityofDavis.org.

The Yolo County Central Landfill accepts electronics for free recycling every day. Items accepted include television and computer monitors, cell phones, fax machines, printers, stereos, keyboards, vacuum cleaners, toasters, typewriters, VCRs, CPUs, microwaves, DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes and cassette tapes. There is a fee for appliances.

The landfill is open from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. To get to the landfill, take Pole Line Road north from Davis and turn right onto County Road 28H.

The landfill also accepts fluorescent bulbs and tubes from residents every day during normal operating hours. Bring fluorescent bulbs and tubes to the scale house. There is a $2 convenience charge regardless of the number of bulbs/tubes you bring in.

As always, residents can bring fluorescents as well as cleaning agents, propane cylinders and pesticides to the household hazardous waste drop-off days at the landfill every Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Warmer weather is here! The sun is shining, the garden is growing and the lawn needs mowing! Did you know that instead of hauling your lawn clippings to the curb for pickup, you can leave them on the lawn as a fertilizer? It’s called grasscycling.

Cut your lawn frequently to produce small clippings that will fall between the standing blades and decompose quickly. Grasscycling will not cause thatch to build-up on your lawn — thatch is primarily caused by grass roots and stems.
