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.
