Getting rid of motor oil and other toxic items

Article posted on Monday, October, 3rd, 2011 at 12:25 PM

I clean out a lot of garages. It’s rewarding, but not that easy getting rid of some of the contents that the homeowner doesn’t want anymore, like motor oil. But here are a few tips for you that I’ve learned along the way:


– Motor oil or gasoline that is still good can be given to a neighbor, a worker in the neighborhood (lawn maintenance crew) or a nearby service station.

– Old motor oil can also be given to a service station to be disposed of.

– Paint that is still good can be given to a local junior high or high school for their drama department to use for sets.

– If the paint is dried and solid, it can be put in your trash can. Trash companies will not pick up paint that is not dried.
