EXPRESS OIL CHANGE® & Service Center takes our stewardship of the environment seriously. That’s why when we perform an oil change on your vehicle, each and every drop of used oil that we remove from your vehicle is recycled. On a regular basis, used motor oil is removed from our environmentally-safe receptacles by companies that specialize in the recycling of used motor oil. This process helps ensure that used motor oil does not end up in landfills where serious soil contamination can occur. The used motor oil is cleaned and replenished with additives so that the refined oil can be used again. A small percentage of recycled motor oil is once again used for vehicle lubrication. The vast majority of it, however, is used for commercial and industrial purposes such as heating oil in power and manufacturing plants or in asphalt production.
If you choose to change your motor oil yourself EXPRESS OIL CHANGE® & Service Center will gladly accept your used motor oil for recycling. Simply drop off your used motor oil in an acceptable container to any EXPRESS OIL CHANGE® & Service Center and we will store it in our used oil receptacle for pick-up and recycling.
