Antifreeze

Antifreeze, or coolant, is used as freeze protection and as a heat transfer medium for motor vehicles, heavy equipment and buildings. The most common type is made of ethylene glycol, a material that is toxic to humans and animals. Used antifreeze may also contain levels of dissolved heave metals that can be toxic to animal life and may contaminate soils and sediments. If ethylene glycol biodegrades in large quantities, it can deplete the levels of dissolved oxygen in surface waters, killing aquatic organisms.

Antifreeze needs to be disposed of properly, do not place in your curbside trash or recycling containers.

Multiple retail establishments accept this material around the county. These centers accept a maximum of 5 gallons of antifreeze per visit. Depending on the center, disposal fees range from $1.50-$3.00/gallon.
