Automotive Fluids

  Automotive Fluids Cleaning out the Garage?
If you have unwanted automotive products, please dispose of these materials safely. Antifreeze, transmission, brake and other automotive fluids are hazardous because they may contain heavy metals, toxic and/or flammable additives, poisons or contaminants. If these products are handled or disposed of incorrectly, they can pose a threat to human health, animals and the environment. If they are still useable, the best way to handle these materials is to use them up or give them to someone who can. You can take both new and used automotive fluids to the San Joaquin County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility.

News and Updates

HHW Re-Use Room

If the products or items dropped off at the HHW are:
1) useable,
2) not a banned product and
3) are full enough to make it worthwhile, our hazardous materials specialists will place them in the HHW Re-Use Room, where other county residents who can use these products can take them home FREE of charge.

Why waste a perfectly good product by placing it in the trash when someone out there can re-use it? You can feel good about helping the environment and helping people save a few bucks.
