Used oil

Up to five gallons will be accepted at all SWS facilities in a separate collection area. These areas are open during the same hours as the facilities where they are located. The used motor oil is later refined; some of it goes for use in ship engines, or back into usable oil for autos. An additional five gallons will be accepted at CTS for an additional charge of $1.00 per gallon.





While you’re at the ARL or CTS facilities, be sure to visit the Paint & Materials Exchange. When the public drops off hazardous materials, SWS checks them and put the usable products in the Haz Bin. 

For example, SWS takes in 50 to 100 gallons of paint each week. Sometimes good paint comes in unopened. You might also be able to pick up some household cleaning solvents, auto fluids, or lawn and garden chemicals, depending on availability.
