DID YOU KNOW?
Over 60% of all oil-related pollution in the U.S. is caused by improper disposal of used motor oil, making it the single largest source of oil pollution in our nation’s waterways.

The U.S. EPA reports that over 200 million gallons of motor oil are tossed in the trash, spilled on the ground or poured down drains and sewers annually.

We must act now to uphold Section 311 of the Clean Water Act, which states: "It is the policy of the United States that there should be no discharges of oil or hazardous substances into or upon the navigable waters of the United States, adjoining shorelines, …, or which may affect natural resources belonging to, appertaining to, or under the exclusive management authority of the United States."
