Will you recycle my used motor oil and filters? What about batteries and cell phones?
Motor oils and filters are accepted curbside for residential customers. Recology will provide you with up to five one-gallon plastic jugs for used motor oil and up to five zippered plastic bags for used oil filters if you contact us. Simply leave the filled jugs and bags beside your blue recycle cart when you put it out for service and your driver will pick it up.
Residential and multi-family accounts are both eligible for Recology’s battery and cell phone recycling programs. Tape the ends of the batteries to prevent leakage or combustion. Tape battery buttons to a piece of paper. Residential customers should place the batteries or cell phones in a clear plastic bag. Place the sealed plastic bag on the lid on top of your BLACK garbage cart. Multi-family dwelling property managers may contact us to order a battery and cell phone collection bucket for tenants. Once the bucket is full, Recology will arrange to empty it.
