CVSan: Earn A Coupon for A New Motor Oil Filter

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).

(* 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.)
