Project Title & Description
Oil Recycling Pilot Project
El Paso Solar Energy Association proposes to reduce land contamination by implementing a motor oil recycling demonstration project in the Montana Vista area of El Paso County. Montana Vista is a large colonia which grew without the benefit of running water or sewer, surrounded by other developing colonias with even fewer services. All but a few homes in the area are owner-built & owner occupied by first generation immigrants likely to change their own oil. It's difficult to recycle used motor oil in the colonias-there are few nearby recycling operations. People of the area haven't acquired the habit of recycling.
