Does San Antonio have any Oil Recycling Centers? I live out by the 151/1604 intersection, but I can travel as necessary...

The city has a drop off point for paint and oil and chemicals. It is open, I believe, every Thursday. It's located next to the fire house on Culebra, just inside 410. Call 311 and they can give you details. I've used them for all those things and it's free.

Wal-Mart will also take it. I drop it off at the Wal-Mart by Culebra and 1604.

I think I went there before. It's called the Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Center (the HHW DOC) and it's located @culebra. It's too bad that I cannot use the service since I live outside the city limits (I was asked to show a CPS bill showing the "environmental fee" as proof of residency, but I've never been charged such kind of a fee so they couldn't accept my oil and whatnot.). If you pay the monthly environmental fee (=the city's solid waste rate fee) through CPS, the HHW DOC is accessible at no cost to you, which is cool.

Solid Waste Management - HHW-Drop Off Center

BTW, I always drop off oil at an auto parts store such as Auto Zone.

Sorry to you, yosoyway. I put "K" instead of "C", but I guess it's still obvious.
To make a long story short, it's the very first Spanish word I learned from my father-in-law and I even thought it was my nickname for a while. As you know, the Spanish word has many meanings, but he uses it as "idiot/stupid" or "silly" around me. I guess I get more respect from him now, and I don't hear the word from him anymore.

I went by there and asked, you have to go inside and find someone in the automotive service area, sign some book, and have then take you out to the locked cage where you can deposit the used oil. Seems like a lot of work, but with the price of a barrl nearing $140 I guess even old oil is valuable!

Cheers! M2

They're open on Saturdays as well. But bring your CPS bill!
