Recycling Reminder - Used Motor Oil


Used Motor OIl Jug

Bellingham, WA - (June 16, 2011)  Our used motor oil recycling flyer has recently been updated and is available to customers at our office, Bellingham Transfer Station & Recycle Center (F&Roeder) or can be downloaded here.

Recycling Reminder - Used Motor Oil

Used motor oil is accepted for recycling through our residential and multi-family curbside program. Customers can also drop-off used motor oil for recycling at our  Cedarville Transfer Station and Birch Bay Transfer Station. For hours and directions, click here. Commercial customers should contact us for options or 360-734-3490.

Used motor oil ONLY. Do not mix with anything else. Store in a one gallon (or smaller), sealed, non-breakable container. Clean plastic milk or water jugs work great. Do not use bleach, detergent, or antifreeze containers. Screw on threaded lids tightly. Seal “pop top” style lids with duct tape. Mark container “Oil.” Set next to recycling bins (residential) or recycling Toters® (multi-family) for collection.

For additional questions, or to recycle larger quantities, contact us at or 360-734-3490.

Oil & Water Don’t Mix – Separating Oil from Water

  1. Let the oil / water mix stand. The oil will float to the top.
  2. Pour off oil into an approved container (see above). Seal and label as instructed above.
  3. Soak up any contaminated water and dispose of in the garbage

Used motor oil collected in our recycling program is processed by Thermo Fluids in Sumner, WA. Thank you for recycling!
