Used motor oil is a hazardous substance that requires special handling. Do not place motor oil in the trash or recycling and never dump it in sewers or household drains.
The City of Madison has four drop-off sites for used motor oil that are managed by City Engineering. These public sites are always open. You must empty your oil into a tank on site.
These sites are randomly tested to protect against contamination. If the sites are locked upon arrival, they should be available again the following day. Testing typically removes a drop-off site from service for 24 hours.
For questions on the public waste oil recycling sites contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Andrew Solberg of City Engineering at (608) 267-9408
In addition to the public sites, there are several area businesses that will accept used oil from the public.
