Used Oil Filter Exchange Events

The Regional Waste Authority hosts Oil Filter Exchange Events during full weekends (Saturday-Sunday) in July in partnership with all of the Autozone and O'Reilly Auto Parts Stores within Merced County.  During these event days, residents who change their own oil can bring in a used oil filter and get a new one (retailing under $12) for free!  These Filter Exchange Events will only be held on full Saturday-Sunday weekends in July;  Please check back for 2019 Dates.

(Note: Outside of the oil filter exchange events, the following locations accept up to 5 gallons of used motor oil and used oil filters year-around during normal business hours; please contact a store near you for details.)
