Storage of oil, paint, solvents and other environmentally harmful products should not be stored outside especially in open containers. Residents are responsible for any spills over which they have control and as per the City Bylaw, we may impose a fine. The resident will be responsible to clean up the spill to our standards or if we determine the resident does not have the adequate resources to do it themselves, we will clean it up and charge the costs back to the resident. It is best to prevent spills from happening.
Because The City of Red Deer cannot accept used motor oil at the Waste Management Facility, residents can take used motor oil to the following locations:
- Canadian Tire - fees will apply
- Walmart (North and South locations) - free of charge
- Also visit www.usedoilrecyclingab.com for more information on oil recycling in your area.
