Recycle

 

Kwik Kar of Allen has recycled all of the oil and filters from every oil change since the store was built in 1993. We have been and continue to be stewards of the environment and the planet. We will even accept your used oil and filters if you change it yourself.

It is common for people to recycle paper, glass and metals like aluminium and steel. But individuals who are unfamiliar with the importance of recycling used oil are unconsciously harming the environment by throwing it away with their normal garbage or emptying their used oil into storm drains. Such actions, especially emptying used oil into storm drains, can cause real harm to the environment. To put it into perspective, just one gallon of used oil can contaminate 1 million gallons of water.

Recycling used motor oil keeps it out of our rivers, lakes, streams and even the ground water. In many cases, that means keeping it out of our drinking water, off our beaches, and away from wildlife. We all share the responsibility of protecting our environment and keeping our waters safe. Recycling used oil allows us to continue to enjoy what many of us take for granted every day - clean water.
