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 (limits apply)
  • 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 original containers where possible, or 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 Recycling Management Authority for drop-off locations or see our Business Waste resources.
