Used motor oil is a hazardous substance that requires special handling. Used oil should not be put in the trash and should never be dumped in sewers or household drains.
The City of Madison has four drop-off sites for used motor oil and a fifth is operated by Dane County. 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 608-267-2626
In addition, there are several area businesses that will accept used oil from the public.
