How to safely dispose of automotive chemicals

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

Auto chemicals include:

  • Motor oil
  • Antifreeze - all types, including RV antifreeze
  • Brake fluid
  • Engine oil
  • Chain oil
  • Power steering fluid
  • Transmission fluid
  • Any container with a hazard symbol on it (flammable, poisonous, etc.) including empty containers.

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.

If you are a business with automotive chemicals to dispose of, visit the Alberta Used Oil Management Association for drop-off locations or see our Business Waste resources.
