Free oil filter exchange planned Saturday

From page A4 | November 15, 2013 |

Do you change your own motor oil? If you do and you live in Yolo County, you can get a free oil filter when you recycle your used one on Saturday.

Filters may be brought to any O’Reilly Auto Parts or Autozone store in Yolo County, with a limit of two exchanges per resident, while supplies last. Participating stores may ask customers to fill out a pledge form before exchanging the filter.

Staff members from the city of Davis Recycling Program will be at O’Reilly Auto Parts, 1681 Research Park Drive in South Davis, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, handing out free oil change mats, funnels and drain pans. Another O’Reilly store is at 16 W. Court St. in Woodland; Autozone is at 90 W. Main St. in Woodland.

The filter exchange and oil change supplies are made possible by a grant from CalRecycle.

Each year, California generates 67 million used automotive filters per year. The filters are considered hazardous waste and are banned from landfills, but they are completely recyclable. Each filter has about a pound of re-usable steel.

Before it is drained, an oil filter can contain more than a pint of used oil. All the filters sold annually in California can be recycled into 67 million pounds of steel, enough to build three large sports stadiums.

For more information, visit DavisRecycling.org or call Jennifer Gilbert, city conservation coordinator, at 530-757-5686.
