Used oil is hazardous waste – it contains toxic chemicals and heavy metals such as lead and cadmium that must be disposed of properly. Safe disposal is very important – these materials should never be put in the garbage or poured down the drain.  Government regulations ban such practices in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Used Oil and Glycol Recycling Program ensures that residents can properly dispose of used oil including lubricating oil, crankcase oil, gear oil and transmission fluid.
