Event Flyer (PDF: 504KB)
Local truckers can recycle up to 20 gallons of used oil for free
The City of Vernon will be holding a used oil recycling collection event on Saturday,
September 5th, 2015 from 9:00am to 1:00pm at Vernon Fire Station #3, 2800 S. Soto St.
Owner/operator truckers who live and/or work in Vernon and the surrounding cities are
encouraged to bring their used motor oil and filters to recycle for free. Truckers are
limited to 20 gallons maximum for this event. Oil must be transported in a clean, nonbreakable
container; contaminated oil will not be accepted.
"Used motor oil and filters are highly recyclable," says Kevin Sales, Vernon's Used Oil
Recycling Program coordinator. "The City wants to make used motor oil and filter
recycling as easy for owner/operator truckers as possible. There have not been any used
oil recycling programs of this kind specifically focused on truck drivers. Recycling used
oil reduces pollution and illegal dumping in the City of Vernon. These collection events
will also provide a free, convenient service for truckers who may not have other places to
dispose of their used oil."
The City of Vernon encourages local truck drivers to participate in the event and to
recycle their used motor oil and filters. Supplementary educational materials will be
available as well as additional promotional items for eligible participants.
