Automobile and lawn equipment maintenance have gotten much more complicated over recent years, however, changing the oil is something many do-it-yourselfers still do. But what do you do with the used motor oil and filters?

The Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department (OCSWMD), is working with the Illinois Recovery Group, Inc. (IRG), out of Braceville, IL, to conduct an oil and antifreeze recycling event on Saturday, Aug. 13, from 8 a.m. to noon, at 909 W. Pines Road in Oregon at the Ogle County Pines Road Annex parking lot.

Ogle County residents and farmers can bring in large barrels of used motor oil (up to 4 barrels or 200 gallons maximum per visitor) or small containers of oil, which will be bulked together and recovered. IRG will be on hand with a vacuum truck to pump the used oil and antifreeze into their specialized truck. All containers and jugs used to transport oil or antifreeze must be taken back by participants and reused or disposed of with regular trash pickup.

Oil filters will also be collected and placed into bins for draining and recycling. Please do not mix or bring in brake fluid, power steering fluids, paints, paint thinners, or other contaminants with oil or antifreeze, as these materials will not be accepted. Tires and other waste will not be accepted at this event.

Recovered oil and antifreeze can be either recycled into new products, or in the case of oil, used as a fuel source for buildings, construction work, and more. Please take advantage of this event if you have used oil around the garage or barn. Let’s keep used oil and antifreeze out of our public water systems, waterways, and soils and rid your residence of these materials, which can be a safety hazard around the house to people or pets.

If you have any questions about this event, or have more than 200 gallons of oil to be recycled, please call OCSWMD at 815-732-4020 or visit
