Each year, over 16 million gallons of oil run into our oceans from our streets and driveways. That is more than one and a half times the Exxon Valdez spill!
In addition to fixing your car if it leaks oil, make sure you're properly disposing of used oil at a gas station or approved collection area for recycling. NEVER dump it in a storm drain or field, where it can enter our ground water supply or drain to our waterways or oceans. For more information visit Surfrider.org.
