Motor oil is a hazardous material and should never go in curb-side recycling or in trash. Please read below for proper disposal. See also the NJ DEP brochure for additional information.
*Used Motor Oil Fact* — Used motor oil can be re-refined into motor oil that’s as good as new, or reprocessed as industrial boiler fuel.
- Do not spill any oil on the ground.
- Put your used motor oil in a clean plastic container with a tight lid. Never store used oil in a container that once held chemicals, food, or beverages.
- Do not mix the oil with anything else, such as antifreeze, solvent, or paint.
- Take used motor oil to a service station or other location that collects used motor oil for recycling (see below for list).
