Engine oil

How to dispose of engine oil safely.

3 bottles of motor oil.

Do not dispose of engine oil at home. Take this waste to your local recycling centre (RC).

  • Which RC container

    Use the special container for waste engine oil. Bring oil to the centre in an appropriate container and follow guidance from staff.

  • Which RC accept this waste

    All our recycling centres accept engine oil (up to 25 litres).

  • Safety information

    It is illegal to pour engine oil into drains or waterways. Oil contaminates water, including drinking water, damages marine life and harms the bacteria which break down sewage.

  • Need more information?

    If you require further assistance, ask a member of staff at the centre. For further information contact Waste Management Services on 01243 642106.
