Motor oil

Safely recycle motor oil, oil filters and motor oil containers for free at a household hazardous waste drop-off location:

Special instructions

  • If you want to keep your container/jerry can, you must dispose of motor oil at a City landfill Throw 'n' Go.
  • Use a sealed, spill-proof container and make sure it is clearly labelled.
  • You can bring up to 20 litres of household chemicals per week.
  • Never flush motor oil down your toilet, sink or drain as it can harm the environment and/or the pipes in your home.
  • Do NOT put motor oil, containers or filters in your blue, black or green carts.

For businesses with motor oil, oil filters and other automotive chemicals, visit the Alberta Used Oil Management Association or call toll-free 1-888-922-2298.
