Doing an oil change? Don’t forget the filter!

The City of San Dimas will be holding a used motor oil filter exchange event on Saturday, May 16 from 9 am to 1 pm at AutoZone, 702 W. Arrow Hwy. In exchange for their used motor oil filters, residents will receive new motor oil filters free of charge. (San Dimas residents may receive up to 2 new filters in exchange for 2 used filters; filters valued up to $15 each; restrictions apply; while supplies last.)  After your next oil change, bring in your used oil and filter and receive vouchers for new oil filters.

“Used motor oil and filters are highly recyclable,” says Kevin Sales, San Dimas’ Used Oil Recycling Program coordinator.  “The City wants to make used motor oil and filter recycling as easy for the Do-It-Yourselfer as possible.  Both the motor oil and the steel from the automotive filter will be recycled, and you can redeem your filter voucher immediately for a free oil filter from AutoZone at this one-day event.”

The City encourages all residents to participate in this event and to regularly recycle their used motor oil and filters at participating Certified Collection Centers.  Supplementary educational materials will be available as well as a free recycling container for eligible participants.

Other used oil Certified Collection Centers can be located by calling 888-CLEAN-LA, or visiting Further information regarding this Filter Exchange Event can be obtained by contacting the City’s Used Oil Recycling Hotline at 888-HEY-SLICK.
