Do you change your own oil and live in a single-family home? From October 12th to November 20th, you can participate in CVSan’s award-winning Used Motor Oil Filter Exchange Program to receive a coupon for a new oil filter.
There are four easy steps for residents to participate in the program:
- Drain the used motor oil filter from your automobile, motorcycle, or boat into a pan for 24 hours. This step is important because filters can hold up to a quart of oil.
- Place the filter in the zippered bag that comes in Alameda County Industries’ (ACI) free motor oil recycling kit. For a free recycling kit, contact ACI at (510) 483-1400.
- At least 24 hours before setting out your used motor oil and filter curbside, contact ACI’s Customer Service Department by phone Monday-Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., at (510) 483-1400 or by email at info@alamedacountyindustries to state that you will be participating in the program. Residents with Monday service can leave a voicemail during the weekend stating they will be setting out a used filter on Monday and provide their name, address, and phone number.
- Leave the sealed bag next to your used motor oil at the curb and ACI will collect it on your regular collection day.
Residents will receive a maximum of one coupon* per household per week during the filter exchange program period (up to six coupons per program cycle). Visit cvsan.org/UsedOil for more information on how to recycle used motor oil and filters. (* The coupon is for a limited time only and expires on November 28, 2020. CVSan reserves the right to alter or cancel the program at any time for any reason.)
