Antifreeze, Gasoline, Diesel, Motor Oil, Brake Fluid, Transmission Fluid and Windshield Wiper Solution are all hazardous materials and should be disposed of as household hazardous waste. Antifreeze is toxic and must be stored in a closed container at all times. 

How to Recycle:

Carefully pour the used antifreeze into a clean, plastic jug with a screw-top lid. Secure lid on tightly. DO NOT mix motor oil or antifreeze with any other material (no water, brake fluid, solvents).                                                    

Contaminated Antifreeze & Uncontaminated Antifreeze should be secured in a jug & taken to a Douglas County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event. See here for more details on the next Hazardous Waste Event.
