Recycling is the only legal way to dispose of your used motor oil and filters. Zero Waste Marin and participating businesses offer a free, convenient method to recycle used motor oil and oil filters. Simply collect your oil in a secure container, store your oil filter in a sealed bag, and bring it to one of the locations indicated below during normal working hours. From time to time, Zero Waste Marin hosts used oil and oil filter exchanges. When these events are scheduled, details will be posted here.
Please note that this program is designed for Marin County residents only. Businesses should contract with a universal waste hauler to safely manage hazardous waste or check with the Household Hazardous Waste facilities in San Rafael or Novato to see if they qualify as a Small Quantity Generator.
Maritime boat owners also have the option to participate in the Oil Absorbent Exchange Program (OAEP) at no cost.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, operating hours and services for sites may be impacted. Please contact the location prior to visiting.
