Recycle used oil for free!

At retail locations: Ask where you buy your oil, or see the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program's website to find a motor oil recycling station near you.
At the curb: Set out oil (next to your recycling cart) in tightly sealed 1-gallon containers. 2 gallon limit.
At the Transfer Station: Pour into special collection containers. 5 gallon limit per trip.
Motor oil for recycling must not be contaminated with solvents, bleach, or other wastes. If the oil is contaminated, take it to a HHW location. Never pour motor oil on the ground or down the drain.
