How do I recycle or properly dispose of...

 Click here for used oil and used oil filter recycling.

Cleaning out the Garage?
If you have unwanted automotive products, please dispose of these materials safely. 
Antifreeze, transmission, brake and other automotive fluids are hazardous because they may contain heavy metals, toxic and/or flammable additives, poisons or contaminants.  If these products are handled or disposed of incorrectly, they can pose a threat to human health, animals and the environment.  If they are still useable, the best way to handle these materials is to use them up or give them to someone who can.  You can take both new and used automotive fluids to the San Joaquin County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility.

Are you a Do-It-Yourselfer? 
If you work on your automobile, please dispose of automotive fluids such as antifreeze, brake fluid or other automotive fluid properly.  Click here for used oil and used oil filter information.

There is NO COST for San Joaquin County residents to recycle or properly dispose of these materials at San Joaquin County's Household Hazardous Waste Facility. 

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THESE ITEMS IN THE GARBAGE OR POUR DOWN DRAINS!

Where Can I Take Automotive Fluids for Proper Disposal?

Residents
Residents of San Joaquin County can utilize the following resources to properly dispose of automotive fluids:

San Joaquin Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility
San Joaquin County residents can take up to 15 gallons or 125 pounds per trip to the San Joaquin County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility for recycling and proper disposal.  Click on the HHW link for more information.

HHW ReUse Room
If the products or items dropped off at the HHW are: 1) useable, 2) not a banned product and 3) are full enough to make it worthwhile, our hazardous materials specialists will place them in the HHW Re-Use Room, where other county residents who can use these products can take them home FREE of charge.  Why waste a perfectly good product by placing it in the trash when someone out there can re-use it?  You can feel good about helping the environment and helping people save a few bucks.
