Ag Used Oil and Filter Collection

Monterey County is world famous for the bounty of produce grown here. As a farmer you are a steward of our precious land, tending to the soil and protecting it for an abundant harvest now and into the future. Hazardous wastes, such as used motor oil, pesticides, waste diesel and other chemicals can pollute groundwater and reduce soil fertility. Handling these materials responsibly and safely will keep your land healthy and productive.

Make an appointment to drop off used motor oil and filters at these locations for FREE!

*Generate less than 27 gallons of used motor oil per month. Limit one 55-gallon drum of oil and one 55-gallon drum of filters per drop off.
