Used fluids such as engine oils, transmission fluid, antifreeze and brake fluid are hazardous waste items and must be disposed of properly. In many areas, waste oil, coolant, etc. is being accepted as a part of recycling programs.
Similarly, you may ask, what fluids does AutoZone recycle?
Most AutoZone stores accept used motor oil, transmission fluid, gear oil and automotive batteries.
One may also ask, does O Reilly’s take used antifreeze? O’Reilly Auto Parts collects used motor oil, automotive batteries, transmission fluid, gear oil and oil filters for recycling — free of charge. It is required that containers are returned to customers. Used antifreeze/coolant is considered hazardous waste so we are unable to recycle it in our stores.
Consequently, where can I dispose of used antifreeze?
Take your old, used, or tainted antifreeze to a local recycling center, service station, or auto parts shop.
- Make sure tainted and merely old antifreeze are separated and stored separately.
- Drive the substance to the appropriate disposal facility or hire a commercial waste hauler to pick up the antifreeze for you.
Does Advance Auto Parts take used antifreeze?
Automotive products such as gasoline, antifreeze and motor oil contain cadmium and lead. Check with your local Firestone or Advance Auto Parts to inquire about used motor oil recycling. Or, you can search for an antifreeze or motor oil drop-off location nearest you.
