Antifreeze Can Be Recycled

  • Put the antifreeze in a jar or plastic container
  • Clearly label it "antifreeze"
  • Place on your tree lawn on your regular collection day

Dilution for Sewer Drain

A small amount (5 gallons or less) of antifreeze can be diluted with water and poured down a sanitary sewer drain. These are drains within your home which flow to a waste water treatment plant unless your home is connected to a septic system. 

Where Not to Pour Antifreeze

Do not pour into a septic system. Do not pour anything down a storm drain on your street. These drains flow directly to streams and Lake Erie.
