Oil Disposal


Oil Disposal at Terrace Heights and Cheyne Landfills

It is estimated that 60% of automotive oil changes today are performed by do-it-yourselfers. In Yakima County, that amounts to over 20,000 gallons of used oil per month. Just 1 quart of oil will foul 250,000 gallons of water, that's more water than 30 people drink in their lifetime.
 Yakima County residents can properly dispose of oil at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility at the Terrace Heights landfill or Cheyne landfill at one of our self-service collection bins. 


Other Oil Collection Locations


Yakima County has various used motor oil collection sites throughout the county.  Please contact the Hazardous Waste Facility to find one nearest you at 574-2472. Our drop off sites are for clean, and uncontaminated oil from households.  Pour you used oil into the tank and be sure to take your container home with you to use again.
