Proper Disposal of Used Motor Oil and Filters

Used motor oil is considered a hazardous waste and should not be put in the trash, poured down a sink, poured down storm drains, or poured on dirt areas.
Both used motor oil and used oil filters should be delivered to a collection center for recycling.  Provided below is a list of certified collection centers in El Monte.  All of the listed locations accept both used motor oil and used filters for recycling.  There is a five gallon limit per trip.  Business waste will not be accepted.
