Eco Lube Now Accepting Electronic Items

The City of Raleigh Solid Waste Services Department is partnering with Eco Lube to set up a mini-recycling drop-off center that will accept electronic items- "anything with a cord." Examples include old computers, stereo equipment, small appliances, and TVs. Residents are allowed to bring materials for recycling and must drop off items during Eco Lube’s operating hours. Store hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residents are asked not to leave items at the location outside of store hours as it can jeopardize the success of the program.

The Eco Lube Service Station is located at 4901 Atlantic Avenue.
In addition to being a recycling center, Eco Lube is doing its part in being enviromnental friendly in a traditionally non-environmentally friendly industry:
  • They recycle everything they can, including filters.
  • They use re-refined oil, which saves 85% of oil sourcing. If all oil change shops used this method of cleaning and reusing oil imagine how much less our dependence would be on oil drilling!
  • They use only local businesses for oil and other supplies.
  • For do-it-yourselfers, they will gladly accept your oil, antifreeze or transmission fluid and will recycle it for you.
