City offers free used motor oil recycling to Claremont residents

The city of Claremont sanitation department provides a free curbside used motor oil and filter collection program. Residents who change their vehicle oil at home can take advantage of this convenient, appointment-based program to responsibly dispose of used motor oil.

Used oil cans contain such contaminants as lead, magnesium, copper, zinc, chromium, arsenic, chlorides, cadmium and chlorinated compounds. Oil poured down drains or onto the ground can work its way into our ground and surface waters and cause serious pollution. One gallon of used oil can foul a million gallons of drinking water.  

To participate in this free and easy program, contact the Community Services Department at (909) 399-5431 to request supplies and coordinate a curbside pickup.
