 USED MOTOR OIL COLLECTION GETS BOOST IN WISCONSIN
 AS RAY NITSCHKE SHOWS DO-IT-YOURSELFERS HOW TO PLAY IT SAFE
 /ADVANCE/ MILWAUKEE, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Milwaukee residents who change their own motor oil got a lesson today from former Packer great Ray Nitschke on how to return their used oil for recycling. Nitschke was joined by Wolf Klassen, a director at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and representatives of Mobil Oil to promote public awareness of Mobil's Used Oil Acceptance Program.
 "We want do-it-yourselfers to know that there's a better way to dispose of their used oil than dumping it in the trash or down the sewer," said Klassen. "Programs like the one offered by Mobil service stations make it easy for residents to properly dispose of their used oil."
 Currently, 21 Mobil service stations in Wisconsin are accepting used oil with no charge for the service and regardless of where the oil was originally purchased. At many Mobil stations not having used oil storage facilities, education materials are provided and dealers can refer residents to the nearest approved collection facility.
 "There are many do-it-yourselfers out there who don't know that there are places that will accept their used oil," said Bob Elvert, environmental regulatory adviser for Mobil. "Educating residents on the problem and how to properly dispose of their used oil is key to the success of this program."
 Used oil should be placed in a clear plastic container, such as an empty, clean milk jug, tightly sealed and then returned to a Mobil service station or other approved collection site. The used oil will then be turned over to an approved collection service for recycling.
 Mobil's Used Oil Acceptance Program was piloted in 1990 in Florida and the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area. The program was rolled out nationally in all of Mobil's U.S. marketing regions in 1991.
