When used oil is dumped on the ground or poured down the drain, it becomes a serious pollutant of our ground and surface waters. Remember, if you dump it, you drink it! Residents can take their used motor oil (no other automotive fluids) to the places listed, or to a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event. The oil must be “clean” – no water, no antifreeze, no other fluids mixed in. Call first.
NOTE: Empty plastic motor oil bottles are NOT accepted as recyclables and should be disposed of with your regular trash.
Oil filters can be recycled after being specially drained. Since most people do not have the time or facilities to properly drain the filter, they should be taken to a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event for disposal. Since the filters have a lot of oil left in them, please don’t throw them in the trash. Some auto repair service stations might be able to take filters.
