Motor Oil and Oil Filters
The Windham Solid Waste Management District (WSWMD) accepts used motor oil and up to 10 oil filters at the WSWMD Convenience Center FREE of charge. We also accept transmission fluid, petroleum based liquid lubricants, kerosene or diesel/heating fuel.
We do not accept gasoline or antifreeze. These need to be brought to one of our Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events. We will not accept oil in containers larger than five gallons.
Motor oil received by WSWMD will be inspected when it arrives at the facility. Please plan to wait during the inspection. It is important that the motor oil and other waste fuel is uncontaminated. We use the fuel to heat the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). Any oil that is contaminated with water, gasoline, antifreeze, solvents, leaves, etc., will be refused and returned to the customer. There is a five gallon limit per visit.
Contaminated oil may only be disposed of at one of our HHW collection events. To ensure that your waste oil will be accepted, it should be stored indoors in tightly covered containers, and no contaminants should be added to the oil.
