Used Motor Oil & Filter Recycling
California State Law prohibits the disposal of oil by emptying it in the sewers or storm drains,
putting it in the garbage, or pouring it on the ground!

1. Pick up your free collection container
Free reusable 15-quart used motor oil collection containers and used oil filter collection containers are available to City of San Bernardino residents. Containers may be picked up from the Public Works Department City Hall.
2. Drain the oil from your vehicle into the container.
The collection container is for used oil only. Never mix used oil with other automotive fluids, such as antifreeze or transmission fluid. Never dump used oil in the trash, down the drain or on the ground!
