There are many local auto shops and recycling centers that will accept your used motor oil and oil filters so they can be properly recycled - refined, reconditioned or reprocessed. It is completely free to you. Do not toss into the trash can or recycle can at your home.
Used motor oil is recyclable. If you change your own motor oil, pour it from pan into an empty windsheild wiper fluid bottle (with screw top) when you are done. You can bring this to your local garbage drop off, some places have special days when they take: paint cans, batteries, tires, used oil and other things you would think were not recyclable. If everyone does a little, we can all do a lot!
