St. Bernard Parish Government would like to remind residents to properly dispose of used motor oil. Don’t pour that used motor oil down the drain, ditches or canals! Used motor oil is not only a hazardous waste, but it is a general environmental hazard. As such, an unauthorized release to surface water can be subject to heavy penalties. Once oil gets into a drinking water supply it’s very difficult, time-consuming and expensive to remove.
Used motor oil may be brought to the Area 4 Maintenance Yard located at 7715 E. Judge Perez Dr. in Violet (behind St. Bernard Middle School). The Maintenance yard is open daily between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. There is no charge for this service.
