Heating Oil & Fuels

This item is banned from disposal in the trash in Vermont. It must be disposed of as hazardous waste.

Disposal Options

Heating oil and fuels are accepted at the HazWaste Center at the District Transfer Station. 

Note: For safety reasons, spill prevention, and possible contamination issues, customers should NOT pour off their own oil at the Transfer Station. Instead, place oil containers upright with lids intact in the black plastic storage trays located adjacent to the large tank. If you need your empty container back, a Transfer Station Operator will pour your oil for you while you wait. Ideally, the used oil container should be clear or translucent so that District staff can visually inspect the contents. All used oil must be free of contaminants such as water, gas, diesel, antifreeze, transformer oil (PCBs), etc. Containers should also be sturdy, with no holes, cracks, or other leaks. The lid should be securely attached. Please transport containers safely. If containers are in the back of a pick-up truck, please be careful to secure them so that they do not tip or fall over.
