Published on Mar 18, 2023

Are you a DIY car enthusiast? Do you change your oil at home? If so, then you won’t want to miss the Oil Filter Exchange Event happening in Pasadena today.

The City of Pasadena Department of Public Works is hosting this event to promote their program for recycling used motor oil and oil filters. So, bring your used oil and oil filters to O’Reilly Auto Parts, located at 919 N. Lake Ave, and exchange them for a new oil filter for free between 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 18.

You can exchange up to two used oil filters per household, with a maximum cost of $15 each, not including sales tax (other terms and conditions apply.)

This program is funded by Cal Recycle and is part of Pasadena’s Zero Waste Strategic Plan, which was adopted by the Pasadena City Council on Oct. 20, 214. The plan aims to achieve Zero Waste to area landfills by 2040 by implementing a series of initiatives and programs designed collaboratively with community stakeholders. To achieve this goal, the City of Pasadena Department of Public Works has certified collection centers for used motor oil and oil filters.

This Oil Filter Exchange Event is just one of the initiatives designed to move the community toward Zero Waste. The program is sponsored by the City of Pasadena Department of Public Works and aims to help the community achieve at least an 87-percent waste diversion rate by 2040. So, don’t miss this opportunity to participate in this environmentally friendly event.
