where do you guys drop off you motor oil when your done?
my dad changed jobs and he can't take it to his job anymore.
we got about 50 litres needing to be taken care of.
canadian tire says they'll only take care of an oil change amount (5 litres), its free, and to just leave it by the side of the building.

need ideas cause we got 2 more oil changes coming up in my family and need to get rid of it.

For those who dont know how drains work...they are intended for storm water only meaning that nothing gets treated just gets send out to the outfalls, so creeks and lakes..and common who wants oil on our beaches and parks!

Heres some info to the question:
Used motor oil can be taken to used-oil drop-off centres. The City's Toxics Taxi program provides free pick-up from Toronto residents (minimum of 10 litres and maximum 50 litres). You must be at home for the pick-up (by truck operated by the Solid Waste Management Division).
Call 416-392-4330 for more information or to make an appointment for the Toxics Taxi.

one drop of oil in the sewer will contaminate 1000 litres of water. It's also illegal to dump oil in the sewer system.

Transfer the oil to empty windshield washer containers and drop them off at CT. That's what we've been doing for a couple of years now. Specially when changing oil on a Porsche that's bit more than 5L :D

Bring it to canadian tire. They will take care of it all but you have to pay $2.50 for the disposal of 5 litres. You can bring it all but you just have to pay. Oooh and for you guys that leave it outside of canadian tire (propr'one), you guys are just dumping it on public grounds and canadian tire is not "taking care of it" if thats what youre thinkin. King Louis just come see me at canadian tire dundas & trafalger since youre in oakville. Ask for the parts manager. I will help sort it out for you. Or call Toxics Taxi.

^^i should have been more specific. I've talked to the service manager at the canadian tire by my house, he's a huge environmentalist, and he has personally told me that if you leave oil in a sealed conatiner infront of the service door he will make sure its recycled. i guess its not accurate to say that every canadian tire will do this.

What you can also do is just bring your used oil to a shop when you have your car serviced. If you're doing some work at the shop, i'm sure the shop owner wont mind recyling a bit of oil for you (probably not 50L though)

My bad. I misunderstood your comment. If you set something up with canadian tire then they will gladly take care of it for you. But at most canadian tires if you just leave it outside their property they wont be held responsible for it. Theres also a huuuge dumping fine if Im not mistaken when you dump oil just anywhere. I apologize propr'one, I was mistaken regarding your comment. We should all remember that when we are dumping we are just hurting ourselves and our loved ones.

Because people are ignorant about environmental issues, ie dumping used oils into the sewers..

Btw, all that those toxins end up in the food down the road..

Yeah I agree with you, I was just trolling. I'm far from an environmentalist though.. For example I don't bother recycling my trash, because I produce so little and it's just too much work for me to sort it out.

soak it up with rags, then keep it in a cardboard box next to your furnace.
