RECYCLE USED MOTOR OIL!
Nearly a billion gallons of motor oil are used by Americans every year – and 350 million gallons of oil end up polluting the environment because of improper disposal methods. Used motor oil is often contaminated with lead (from gasoline), magnesium, copper, zinc, PCB’s and other heavy metals which are picked up from engines. These heavy metals can contaminate our drinking water and cause health problems. The Coachella Valley Association of Governments will be hosting a series of used oil filter exchange events to encourage residents to recycle. These events are open to all Coachella Valley residents.
