Waste Oil & Other Automotive Products

Many automotive products are flammable and most contain toxic ingredients. 

In many areas, residents are not permitted to throw away flammable material in the garbage, down home drains or down storm water sewers. 

Automotive products are not appropriate for septic system disposal.  If you dispose of these products improperly, they will pose a hazard to drinking water quality and living things. 

Please note:  In view of rapidly changing information about the toxicity of hazardous substances, readers are cautioned to take personal responsibility for following the guidelines listed here. 

If you need additional advice, contact your county extension office or your district DNR office's hazardous waste section.
