Recycling Motor Oil

Iíve heard about lot of places that will take your used motor oil for a fee. For all you people that change your own motor oil in the Mississauga and Brampton area, here are two locations where you can recycle your motor oil for free.

Brampton - http://www.region.peel.on.ca/pw/wast...ampton-crc.htm

Mississauga - http://www.region.peel.on.ca/pw/wast...leford-crc.htm

Iíve been to the Brampton location and told the Mississauga location operates the same. Itís fast and itís free. You just drive up to the Hazardous Waste section and drop off your container(s) of oil.

I didnít see any info on a free location here on the form, though I would add this.

Thanks! Good information!
I wish more people knew about this and would stop dumping oil in the garbage, or at a Canadian Tire/Walmart.

I remember back in the day it was free at Canadian Tire. But the Canadian Tires I've called in Brampton told me that they now charge some kind of environment fee. It's only a few bucks, but why pay when it free elsewhere. From what I hear the "free" way to drop off oil at Canadian Tire is to drive up late at night, park the car so that it's not in view of the camera, and walk up and drop off the oil at the service door. LOL

Then again each store could be different.

They DON'T take it for free, they charge and some rude people leave it at their door. Just imagine if I left my garbage at your door. It costs money to have it taken away
(I have a bit of a chip on my shoulder, I used to work there and have to deal with that all the time).

I just take it to the city hazardous waste dump. I collect it over like a year period, then just take it all there at once.

I should start doing my own oil changes instead of paying Honda 40 dollars for it.

Good post, I always take my oil to the recycling centre, your allowed a certain amount a day. I usually take in 3-4 jugs at a time. They will also take old car batteries too. Anything that is a hazard to the environment they will take for free, ie: paint, thinnners, etc etc.

That's strange, I take my oil to the canadian tire in woodbridge (and the one in waterloo when I'm in school) and all I do is walk into the auto service section with the jug, say "Hi, I'd like to dispose of some oil" the guy takes it from me and says thanks, and that's the end of that, no signing or anything

Keep in mind oil is recyclable. It doesn't go into the garbage. I would think it would still cost money to dispose of the oil, but the local townships will one way or another get that back through tax dollars, not sure how Canadian tire does it, but im sure that they charge you a environmental fee when you get your oil changed there. But if they take it for free all the better.

they probably reuse the used oil at crappy tire.
i go to the dump every couple of months to drop off the oil.
