EPA Launches Motor Oil Recycling Campaign for Spanish Speakers

Washington, D.C. -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has launched a Spanish language campaign to promote motor oil recycling among Hispanic consumers and autoworkers. The campaign, called "You Dump It, You Drink It," was launched when a Clifton Park, N.Y., research company announced that half of all auto mechanics in the United States are Hispanic, but little if any recycling material is available to them in Spanish. Campaign materials include a brochure on disposing of and recycling motor oil, a display poster for gas stations and a reference card for owners and managers of repair and service shops.
