[ARCHIVED] Free Used Oil Filter Exchange

It’s simple to participate and why wouldn’t you? Don’t leave your project unfinished, properly dispose of your used oil and filter. Just visit one of the participating Modesto Auto Zone or O’Reilly Auto Parts locations listed below with your coupon.

Did you know that oil filters are considered hazardous waste and are banned from landfills, however, they are also completely recyclable? Each filter has about a pound of re-usable steel. All the filters sold annually in California can be recycled into 67 million pounds of steel, enough to build three large sports stadiums. 

If you are interested, please call Michael Patino at (209) 577-5492 or email to obtain a coupon. Note, one exchange per coupon and one coupon per household. 

Thank you for recycling!
