Are you a do-it-yourself oil changer? Well, you're not alone. Last year, the SWA recycled more than 31,095 gallons of used oil we received from Palm Beach County residents. We continuously strive to collect and recycle more used oil. However, we still need to get this message out:
Used oil doesn't belong in our ground or water table!
Used Oil Collection Centers in Palm Beach County
Used Oil Collection Centers have been established throughout Palm Beach County in a cooperative effort between government and private businesses. No law requires service stations to accept used oil. Some must pay to have the oil hauled away and therefore may charge a small fee to accept it. Please call your collection center to learn more before dropping off used oil. Remember these locations accept used oil only!
For more locations near you call the Florida Department of Environmental Protection at 800-741-4337 to find a participating public used oil collection center.
Residents can bring used motor oil to the Solid Waste Authority Household Hazardous Waste Facility or any SWA transfer station free of charge. There is a SWA drop-off location near you. We make it easy for every do-it-yourself oil changer to properly dispose of their oil.
So the next time you buy motor oil, take your used oil back. There is a disposal location on the way.
