Recycle Butte
Used oil is one of the most easily recyclable materials in common use.  It is also one of the most important to recycle properly.  Improperly disposed oil can contaminate ground water as well as surface water.  Used oil is re-refined into new oil or reprocessed into other fuels.  By recycling used oil, we reduce our dependence on other sources of fossil fuels.
