College Station, Texas (KWKT) — After over two decades, College Station has closed its recycling center for used motor oil and filters.
The station has collected over 45,000 gallons of used motor oil since it was established.
But the city points to the other substances that have been dumped in the unmanned station over the years as one of the reasons for shutting the facility down.
When the facility opened in the 90’s, it was the only one of its kind in the area. Now there are several area businesses that accept used oil and filters.
