Safely dispose automotive chemicals for free at a household hazardous waste drop-off location:

Auto chemicals include:

  • Motor oil
  • Anti-freeze
  • Windshield fluid
  • Brake fluid
  • Any container with a hazard symbol on it (flammable, poisonous, etc.)

Special instructions

  • Use a sealed, spill-proof container and make sure it is clearly labelled.
  • We accept up to 20 litres of household chemicals per week.
  • Never flush chemicals down your toilet, sink or drain as they harm the environment and may damage the pipes in your home.

Locations and hours are listed below:

Commercial quantities

For commercial amounts of automotive chemicals, visit the Alberta Used Oil Management Association for drop-off locations or call toll-free 1-800-563-6326.
