Post Take My Used Motor Oil, Please!

Seems like its is getting harder and harder to PROPERLY dispose of used motor oil these days.

Seems like if you sell it, you should also have to take the used oil back to recycle it.

Anybody else having this problem, or is it just a State of Ohio thing?

out here in sunny ca. we get charged 5c a quart for disposal fees. auto parts stores must take the used oil back as long as it's not contaminated, i.e. water, dirt, etc. check your city yards also, they may take it in hopes you don't dump it somewhere. some asphalt places also use it. good luck.

Here in PA, the Pep Boys Auto stores will take it from you. Try some of your local parts suppliers, you may find someone to take it. We also have oil change places that use the old oil to heat the building in the winter, maybe one of them will take it. HotRod

We take peoples used oil all the time at the dealership I work at. Unfortunately I've never asked if we do it as a curtessy or if it's state law in Jersey that we have to.

If you have an Advance auto parts store in your area they will take used motor oil. If not check with some of your chain auto parts stores in the area.

Old motor oil works great to start burn-pile fires. It can even help get those pesky shingles from a garage to burn........

mix it 50/50 with kerosene and spray it around as a weedkiller, and to keep the dust down in the summer. ;-)

(just kidding) jiffy lube and other quick lube places will usually take it.
