Doing your own oil change is a great way to protect your engine. Through Waste Management used motor oil and oil filters are collected for free curbside at most single-family homes and some apartments – call 510-613-8710 to confirm service for your address and request the free jug to contain oil. When the oil change is complete, place up to four filled motor oil recycling jugs and up to two filters in sealed plastic bag curbside next to (not inside) your trash cart on your regularly scheduled pickup day.
