Oil Absorbent Exchange Program
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: “Used motor oil is insoluble, persistent, and can contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals... Used motor oil is a major source of oil contamination of waterways and can result in pollution of drinking water sources. The oil from a single oil change (1 gallon) can ruin a million gallons of drinking water.”
Boaters can take advantage of the FREE Oil Absorbent Exchange Program at Lake Berryessa, Rio Vista, and in Suisun City*. At the end of every season, boaters can place their used oil absorbent (bilge pillow, pad, or sheet) in the red canisters and take out a new absorbent from the blue dispensers.
