Motor oil doesn't wear out, it just gets dirty; it can be cleaned of contaminants and recycled indefinitely.
While supplies last, the City is giving away oil recycling kits at City Hall, located at 21810 Copley Drive, to Diamond Bar residents who change their car or lawn mower oil. Each kit consists of a funnel, a sturdy reusable container and shop towels. Free used oil and filter collection is available either curbside or door-to-door, with advance notice, from both of the City’s contract waste haulers. Local drop-off service is available at any State-certified collection center, including the AutoZone, Firestone, and Jiffy Lube locations in town.
To keep your container for reuse, transfer contents into a clean plastic container with lid, such as a household liquid detergent container before placing curbside or calling for door-to-door collection. When taking to a collection center, you will be asked to empty used oil into a designated drum.
