UNION COUNTY, NJ - Do-it-yourselfers can recycle used motor free of charge at 16 locations in Union County, including Union, through Union County’s Bureau of Recycling.

The Union Recycling Center is located at 1 Swanstrom Place. 

“We offer free motor oil recycling as a convenience to the many Union County residents who work on their own cars, lawn mowers and other motorized equipment,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “It is one of many free Union County programs that help our residents conserve resources and protect the environment, too.”

“The Freeholder Board is proud to support programs that empower Union County residents with resources and information on discarding materials like motor oil in a responsible way. We will continue to seek new opportunities for expanding our recycling programs and attracting more participants,” said Freeholder Sergio Granados, who visited a new motor oil recycling station at the Rahway Fire House on Wednesday.

Union County’s motor oil recycling program began in 1999. The County is currently replacing older recycling igloos with new models. The new igloo at the Rahway Fire House is painted red in honor of its location at a fire station.
