47 Where can I recycle used motor oil?

In the San Francisco South Bay Area, if you are a homeowner, you can
arrange for curbside pickup by calling the following numbers:

   Campbell	408-354-2100		Morgan Hill	408-779-7248

If you're a renter in the San Francisco South Bay Area, you have to bring
your used motor oil to a recycling center. Here are the numbers for some of
those:

   Los Gatos Recycling Center			408-354-6808

Alternatively, you can call 1-800-553-2962 for a listing of local service
stations which accept used motor oil for a fee, usually $0.25 - $3.00 per
gallon. There's also the Household Hazardous Waste Program, reachable at
408-299-7300. That same number can also provide you with dropoff sites
for used antifreeze, and perhaps other automotive waste as well.
