This is a hazardous material and must be brought to the annual Household Hazardous Waste Day, or the Regional Hazardous Waste Collection Sites at the Bernardston, Colrain, and Conway transfer stations. Some auto repair shops will accept used oil. Motor oil disposal is available for town residents only at Buckland Highway Garage, Erving Highway Garage, Montague Recycling Center, Orange Transfer Station, and Rowe Town Garage.
Oil Filters: Used oil filters should be punctured on the dome top and drained while hot. Capture the oil that drains from the filter and consolidate it with other motor oil. Once the filter is drained, it can be placed in scrap metal recycling or in the trash. Oil filters cannot be recycled. Disposal is also available, for a fee, at the Regional Hazardous Waste Collection Sites at the Bernardston, Colrain, and Conway transfer staions. They may be accepted by some auto repair shops.
