URGENT!!

Crystal Flash's Used Motor Oil Collection Depots Need New Homes - or they'll
be sent to the landfill!!!!

Crystal Flash is in the process of dismantling their used oil recycling
network in Michigan. As a result, the company is removing numerous in-ground
and above-ground used oil collection depots that have been located at their
retail outlets. 

If they can't find new homes for these depots, the in-ground depots will be
moved to Crystal Flash's bulking facilities, and the fiberglass igloos will
be cut up and sent to the landfill! 

The in-ground depots consist of a cement vault which contains a 500 gallon
tank. On top is a little concrete shelter for the pouring sink. The igloos
hold 300 gallon tanks. 

Crystal Flash is beginning to cut up the igloos now. The in-ground tanks are
being removed this week and next week. The company hasn't really tried to
find new homes for these units. However, my contact at Crystal Flash says
their available for the taking - if you act immediately. 

If your agency is interested in obtaining a depot, contact Dennis Bailey at
(616) 365-0012 - IMMEDIATELY!

If these depots aren't relocated, Michigan's already inadequate oil
recycling network will once again get even weaker.
