Too often used motor oil filters are not recycled and end up in the trash. San Mateo County has over 65 locations for “Do It Yourself” oil changers to drop off used motor oil and filters for proper recycling. There’s also a good chance you can even have these hazardous items picked up from your curb on your garbage day!
To promote used oil filter recycling, San Mateo County is hosting a filter exchange event on March 26th at the O’Reilly at 7283 Mission St. in Daly City, from 10am to 2pm.
How does it work? Bring us your used motor oil filters and we will give you a voucher for a new one for free! There is a limit one free filter per family.
If Daly City is too far but you’d like to be notified of upcoming events, visit flowstobay.org/usedoil and sign up in the top right corner. To be notified by text message, text the word FILTER to 38470. If you’re as forgetful as I am, I recommend signing up for both options!
