Fontana Now Offers Curbside Used Oil and Filter Recycling Program
Fontana, California– The City of Fontana Public Work’s Environmental Division offers a free program that allows residents to recycle their used motor oil and filters without leaving the comfort of their homes. All you have to do is call (909) 350-6789 or submit an online request form and you’re on your way to protecting our environment.
The Curbside Used Oil and Filter Recycling Program allows residents to recycle their motor oil up to 10 gallons per pick-up and filters without leaving their homes. Staff will go to your home to make sure the oil is properly recycled. The benefits of properly recycling used motor oil ensures that it won’t be poured onto the ground or into storm drains and tossed into the trash can, which can contaminate and pollute the soil, groundwater and our water. Taking this simple step will protect our environment. “The City of Fontana has offered the Used Oil Recycling Program for 15 years,” stated Environmental Control Technician Kim Cameron. “Every gallon of oil recycled allows us to protect and preserve our environment for future generations.”
To participate, simply do the following:
- Call (909) 350-6789 and make an appointment for a collection, or complete the online request form.
- On your message include your name, address, and phone number. You will be able to obtain a free oil recycling container and filter bucket from the City.
- Leave the city provided container of oil near the front door or garage of your house the day of the collection. Do not leave at curbside.
- Oil may not be mixed with any other fluids, solvents (ie; gasoline, antifreeze, brake fluids, parts cleaners etc.), paint, dirt or debris of any kind It must be pure used motor oil only, if it is to be recycled.
You can also recycle your used motor oil at any of the certified collection center that have the State’s “Recycle Used Oil” logo.
