Curbside Services: Motor oil and filter recycling

Local jurisdictions have contracts with franchised hauling companies to provide service for collection of garbage, recycling, yard debris and food scraps, and motor oil/filters for residences. Curbside services are also available for businesses.


Recycling is the only legal way to dispose of motor oil and filters.

Curbside recycling for motor oil and filters is available at no cost to all residential hauling company customers.
