Similar to finding a recycling facility, a waste treatment facility will safely treat and dispose of your contaminated brake fluid. However, in this method, you’ll want to make sure the waste centre will accept hazardous waste. Find and deliver the brake fluid to the appropriate facility in 3 steps:
- Research local waste facilities nearby. Use online other resources to find a waste disposal site. Many localities offer public ones run by the local government.
- Make sure the centre accepts hazardous waste. Guarantee your local disposal site will accept old brake fluid. Some places may not be equipped to take in something deemed hazardous.
- Transport the brake fluid. Seal old brake fluid in a secure jar or plastic container to prevent spillage and take it to your chosen waste disposal site. Very few places will offer to pick-up hazardous waste, so be prepared to deliver it yourself and pay a small fee. Some facilities may offer free drop-off and request a donation, financial or otherwise, instead.
