Statewide, only 35 percent of the more than seven million gallons of motor oil used annually is recycled.
DEP strives to prevent environmental damage by encouraging Floridians to recycle used oil at one of the 1,100 Public Used Oil Collection Centers located throughout the State. In 2008, Florida's nationally recognized Public Used Oil Collection Centers successfully recycled 2,302,169 gallons of used oil. All Public Used Oil Collection Centers serve as free used motor oil recycling centers.
To find a Public Used Oil Collection Center near you call 1-800-741-4DEP.
Duval County Residents may take used oil to the county's Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 2675 Commonwealth Ave. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday, 8:00am until 5:00pm. The facility is closed on Sunday.
