Used Motor Oil Disposal
The Nova Scotia Department of Environment requires any retailer who sells oil to collect used oil or provide a drop off location within 5 kilometers of their business. Used oil should be disposed of in the same container that it was purchased in.
Used oil and/or oil mixed with other products such as gas, paints or kerosene and other petroleum based products are not accepted for disposal at the Waste Management Facility. These materials are also not accepted for disposal at CBRM's Household Special Waste Depot. Residents are encouraged to contact the Waste Management Hotline at (902)567-1337 for proper disposal options.
