Used Oil

Recycle home-generated used oil and oil filters at our Eureka Recycling Center and Household Hazardous Waste Facility

There are also many locations that have a low to no-cost program for recycling used oil and filters. If your oil has water, antifreeze or other contamination, please bring it to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility (707) 441-2005.

Businesses that need to recycle oil or filters must schedule an appointment with the Household Hazardous Waste Facility (707-441-2005).
Most sites below are free, and some are low cost (marked with an *). Some sites are State Certified Collection Centers and can pay you $0.10 per quart ($0.40/gallon), if you request the recycling incentive when you give them your used oil.
