Maryland Used Motor Oil Recycling Program
The Maryland Environmental Service (MES) administers the Maryland Used Oil Recycling Program through an Intergovernmental Agency Agreement (IGA) with the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE). MES is responsible for the construction, operation, and the routine maintenance of used oil collection facilities; providing public education and outreach programs related to the disposal of used motor oil; and maintaining an information center to educate citizens regarding the proper disposal of used motor oil. Additionally, MES utilizes these used motor oil collection sites for the collection of related recyclables including used antifreeze and used oil filters.
Since 1988, the MES and MDE partnership has resulted in the collection and recycling of over 14,800,000 gallons of used motor oil in the State of Maryland. Similarly, the program has accomplished the collection and recycling of almost 780,000 gallons of used antifreeze from Maryland Do-It-Yourself automobile enthusiasts.
