PCB Oil Disposal Program
serving Stockton, Tracy, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Lathrop, Escalon and San Joaquin County

How do I recycle or properly dispose of...

PCB oil is making a come-back in San Joaquin County.  We need you help to get this hazardous material out of the waste stream.  Polychlorinated Biphenyls or PCBs were used in a variety of products for their heat resistant properties. PCBs were commonly used in oils for sealed units and hydraulic fluid. This material was banned from use in 1979 and most PCB containing products have already made their way through the disposal system. Recent reports from used oil haulers state that PCB contaminated oil is making a comeback due to military surplus and other heavy equipment items that have reached the end of their useful life and are being drained of fluids so that the metal can be recycled. PCBs are highly toxic. If you suspect that you have PCB contaminated oil, do not come in physical contact with the material and tightly seal the container that it is held in.

If you suspect that you have oil that may be contaminated with PCBs, please contact San Joaquin County Solid Waste Division at 468-3066 or email us at solidwaste@sjgov.org.

We will assist you by providing FREE disposal for quantities of 55 gallons or less through San Joaquin County’s Household Hazardous Waste Program.

There is NO COST (details and conditions apply) for San Joaquin County businesses and residents to drop off these materials at the HHW Facility for proper disposal.

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