can make a difference by recycling your used motor oil.
Did you know used oil can be re-refined into base stock
for lubricating oil.
If you recycle just two gallons of used oil it can
generate enough electricity to run the average household
for almost 24 hours.
Cars are an indispensable fact of life for most of
us. So, too, are abundant and clean supplies of drinking
water. What we do with the used oil from our cars plays
an important role in balancing our desire for convenient
transportation with our desire for a clean and healthy
environment today and for future generations.
We are all familiar with recycling newspapers, aluminum
cans and glass and plastic bottles, but you may not
be aware of the efforts of the petroleum industry and
other groups to promote used motor oil recycling: providing
convenient collection sites for the purpose of keeping
used motor oil out of our waterways and ground water
supplies and getting used oil into the recycling system.
