Charron's Auto Repair will
collect automotive batteries and waste oil on April 26 at 929 S.
Kickapoo in Lincoln. The drive will take place from 9 a.m. to noon
and offers the community an easy, environmentally friendly way to
dispose of waste oil and used automotive batteries.
"This waste oil collection event is designed to meet a growing
problem: how to properly dispose of waste oil collected by
do-it-yourselfers and properly disposing of used automotive
batteries," says Rick Charron.
Non-contaminated waste oil should
be brought to the collection site in sealed, closed containers of
any size. The waste oil will be tested on-site. Batteries from cars,
trucks, boats, RVs and motorcycles will be accepted.
People bringing in batteries and waste oil will receive a free
gallon of windshield washer fluid with the drop-off and will be
entered in a grand prize drawing.
Waste oil will be converted to a usable form by a waste oil
recycler, whose mission is to recover the waste oil generated in
this country every year.

An estimated 6.5 million gallons of waste oil is
generated from Illinois automobiles and light trucks each year.
This waste oil and used automotive batteries could end up in
landfills or cause environmental damage that could last for
generations. Recycling avoids contaminating natural resources of
land and water.
