Motor oil recycling
The following information is from the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District's Guide to Motor Oil Recycling.
Every year in Cuyahoga County, an estimated 300,000 people change their own motor oil. While this can save the "do it yourselfer" money, this practice can come at the expense of our environment if the used oil is poured on the ground, down storm drains, or in the trash.
This oil migrates into our ground water, streams, even Lake Erie. Even just one gallon of used oil can contaminate one million gallons of drinking water when disposed improperly!
