YOLO COUNTY NEWS
99 CENTS

Exchange your oil filter, for free

By
From page A9 | April 19, 2013 |

Do-it-yourself vehicle oil changers will be reminded of the importance of recycling used oil filters with a free oil filter exchange event on Saturday, April 27.

The Yolo County Division of Integrated Waste Management and the cities of Davis, Woodland, Winters and West Sacramento are partnering with O’Reilly Auto Parts and AutoZone stores throughout the county, along with the Napa Auto Parts store in Winters.

According to CalRecycle, Californians generate 67 million used oil filters each year but fewer than 10 percent are recycled or disposed of properly. This means that an estimated 1.2 million gallons of oil in discarded oil filters go to landfills each year.

Recycling oil filters, and the oil they contain, not only prevents the improper disposal of oil and filters, but also allows these materials to be made into new products such as construction rebar and re-refined oil, a news release said.

On April 27, Yolo County residents can receive a free oil filter by bringing in their used one for recycling at any of the O’Reilly Auto Parts and AutoZone stores throughout Yolo County, as well as the Napa Auto Parts store in Winters. There is a limit of two filters per resident.

For more information, visit www.yolocounty.org (select the landfill link) or call 530-666-8856.
