Jiffy Lube's environmental commitment

Before Jiffy Lube came along, over 70% of all oil changes in Indiana were done by individual car owners, many of whom would then dump the old oil wherever they could. That percentage is now closer to 20% plus Jiffy Lube provides a drop off spot for waste oil generated by these “do-it-yourselfers,” further reducing the impact of waste oil dumping. Jiffy Lube collects and stores the waste oil until it is picked up by recyclers/re-refiners, helping keep our waterways clean.
