Recycling Used Oil Filters
Filters are considered hazardous waste and are banned from landfills, but they are completely recyclable. In fact, filters sold annually in California can be recycled into 67 million pounds of steel, which is enough to build three large sports stadiums.
If you do your own oil changes, be sure to take your used oil and filters to one of the three used oil certified collection centers in Diamond Bar:
Autozone 303 S Diamond Bar Blvd. open daily 8 a.m.-9 p.m
Firestone Tires 1150 S. Grand Avenue Mon.-Sat. 7 a.m.-6 p.m Sun. 8 a.m.-6 p.m
Jiffy Lube 2845 S. Diamond Bar Blvd. open daily 8 a.m.-5 p.m
This program is brought to you by the City of Diamond Bar, funded by a grant from CalRecycle. For questions, call (909) 839-7015 or visit the City website.
