RecycleMore Distributes Used Oil Recycling Containers and Filter Drainers at the 2023 Car Show in Pinole

The annual Pinole Classic Car Show was held at Fernandez Park on Sunday, June 25, 2023 from 7am-3pm. The day kicked off with a pancake breakfast at the Pinole Senior Center. After breakfast, many people came out to stroll and view the hundreds of cars on display and visit the vendor booths.

RecycleMore was one of the vendor booths that distributed over 100 Used Oil Drainer Containers and Duo Capacity Oil Filter Drainers. Reusable tote bags and jar openers made of recycled tires were distributed at the booth as well. Mr. Funnelhead made an appearance and took selfies with anyone interested. In addition, 200 Mr. Funnelhead’s Oil Buster Activity Coloring Book’s were passed out to children of all ages, including adults. These items were distributed at no charge to the public and funded by RecycleMore and CalRecycle.

This was a great opportunity for RecycleMore to engage with the public and talk about how to properly dispose of used oil at California Certified Collection Centers, including information on the permanent Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility located at 101 Pittsburg Ave in Richmond, which residents may also dispose of used oil year-round.

Residents in the RecycleMore jurisdiction may request a free Used Oil Recycling Kit that includes a special unbreakable plastic container with a secure screw-on top and leak proof filter bag, by contacting the following:
