It's an old cliché, but it's true. Oil and water just don't mix! Did you know that one gallon of used motor oil can contaminate one million gallons of water?
At Memphis Light, Gas and Water, we are committed to protecting our drinking water, but we cannot do it alone. We need your help.
If you change the oil in your vehicle, one of the easiest ways for you to help us protect your drinking water is to properly dispose of all used motor oil.
Never pour it in a storm drain or on the ground where it can pollute our water. Instead, recycle it.
