How do I go green?

Reduce

Walk, cycle, or car pool to cut down on motor oil use. Choose a push mower, which besides reducing motor oil use will exercise your body and reduce noise pollution.

Reuse

Reuse that rag as often as possible prior to depositing it at a recycling facility. But be sure to keep it away from any source of ignition and keep it well ventilated.

Recycle

The facility below will accept oily rags for recycling. That used rag might end up reconstituted as a fuel briquette.

  • The Environmental Story

    A single drop of motor oil leached from an oily rag can contaminate a million drops of water. Save your rags and take them to a recycler to divert these potentially toxic items from landfills or even worse, our waterways.
