Racine Solid Waste Collection
Are you a backyard mechanic?
If you are, then oil and oil filters should be very familiar to you. Do-it-yourselfers produce over 4 million gallons of used oil each year in Wisconsin. Along with the waste oil, close to 1 million oil filters are also changed.
The Racine Department of Public Works has made it easy and convenient for residents to dispose of waste oil, oil filters and up to 6 gallons antifreeze. Bring to the Public Works Equipment Maintenance Garage located at 830 South Marquette Street, Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 3:00pm.
NOTE: Containers used in the packaging of new automotive oil are not recyclable. Please dispose of them in solid waste.
Valvoline Instant Oil Change stores accept up to 5 gallons of waste oil and 6 used oil filters per person per day, no exceptions.
Acceptable oil: motor oil, hydraulic oils, transmission oils
Unacceptable materials: solvents, paints/varnishes, gasoline, antifreeze, househould chemicals, insecticides, paint/lacquer thinner or any mix of unacceptable material with acceptable material.
