Recycling Used Motor Oil

The Waste Management Facility does not accept used motor oil, oil filters or oil containers.

If you do your own oil changes, your used oil, oil filters and oil containers can be taken to a location for recycling. Please ensure the used oil is either stored in the original container, or another plastic container with a screw top lid that did not previously hold cleaners, solvents, fuels, paints or bleach.

It is not permitted to put used motor oil in your household garbage or to pour it on the ground or down a storm drain.

For more information, including Red Deer locations, refer to the Alberta Used Oil Management Association website.
