The Family Car is a lesson designed for use in adult ESL (English as Second Language) classes.  It introduces basic information about how and where to recycle used motor oil and filters for people who change their own oil. 

C2: Alternative Services developed the lesson with funding from the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), formerly the California Integrated Waste Management Board. This is an ongoing program, with several important elements:

  • The lesson is tailored to each local area where it is taught, so that students receive specific information on oil recycling locations.
  • Teachers in each area are given an orientation to the lesson and the key messages that students should learn about recycling oil and filters.
  • All class materials are provided to each ESL program, including various teaching aids.
