Oily Earth Day Event for Automotive Do-It-Yourselfers

In support of Earth Day 2008, Rice Environmental Services (RES) and Rice Oil Company are encouraging automotive do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) to positively impact the environment by properly disposing of their used automotive fluids and filters.  On Sunday, April 20, in conjunction with the City of Parma and VFW Post 1974, RES will collect and recycle used oil, used antifreeze and used oil filters from area DIYers in an effort to promote sustainability and prevent pollution of Northeast Ohio's natural resources.

In addition, everyone is encouraged to drop off gently used cell phones, Blackberries and Smartphones, which RES will send to Michigan for participation in the Cell Phones For Soldiers program -- a program that enables our troops overseas to phone friends and families at home for free.

The event will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the VFW Hall located at 4305 Woodrow Drive in Parma, Ohio.  The first 50 donators will receive up to four quarts of new motor oil and all participants will receive a hat for their contributions.  Hot dogs will be served with proceeds going toward the purchase and planting of trees in the Cleveland area.  For more information about the event, please call Rice Environmental Services at 1-800-589-RICE (7423) or visit www.1800589RICE.com/earthday.
