Recycling & Waste

Oil - Automotive

Legal Considerations

It is illegal to place automotive oil, filters, and most automotive fluids in the trash, on the ground, in water, down a sewer, or in the storm drain.


Some automotive shops accept used oil for free and may accept other automotive fluids and oil filters for a fee. Call first.

Drop used oil off at a household hazardous collection site. For your convenience, a 24/7 used oil and filter collection shed is located in Arden Hills. There is no disposal fee at these sites.
