    Remove the Transfer Station on Stage Gultch Road in Sonoma County from the list. It is now operated by a private company, not the county, and the oil recycling permit is not carried any more.

    Marin Sanitary takes all that stuff at the transfer station down off of Bellam.

    I put all waste oil, trans fluid, etc from the truck, cars, and bikes into a 5 gallon bucket from Home Depot. When it gets close to the top I go to the local O'Rielly's Auto Parts. I sign a form and they dump it. I even get my bucket back. Never any problems taking it and the filters. I do put the filters in zip lock bags.

    Santa Cruz County Greenwaste will pick up used oil if you first request one of their special jugs. You can put it out with the rest of the trash / recycling.

    I don't recall what the procedures might be for picking up oily rags, filters, etc.
