Recycling your oil

Used oil, if properly recycled, can be turned into fuel oils or used as a raw material for the refining and petrochemical industries. Used oil can be recycled at community oil collection centers, service stations, car dealers or other maintenance facilities, and, in some areas, through local curbside recycling programs.

Place your car's drained oil into a leakproof container with a secure screwon top. Use a clean container that has not held any type of household chemical. A plastic milk jug works fine.

Then just bring your oil to your local Pep Boys service center, where we’ll be happy to recycle it for you.

Tips & Warnings
  • Be sure to keep used oil out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Avoid mixing used motor oil with antifreeze, as the oil will become contaminated.
