Pour your used motor oil into an empty oil container and take it to your local used oil collection facility. This will usually be at the Resource Recovery Centre. Contact your local council for facility details. You'll be helping to conserve a valuable resource and protecting the environment. The oil will be cleaned and reused, reducing demand for this non-renewable resource.
