Auto Battery Recycling

Print This Page

Nebraska law prohibits disposing of motor oil, tires, antifreeze or lead-acid (automotive) batteries in landfills, on the ground, or in waterways because of soil and water contamination. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates over 120 million gallons of used motor oil are changed and disposed of by "do-it-yourselfers," and much of this oil is improperly disposed, resulting in numerous environmental hazards. Many people don't think of the consequences when they pour oil down drains, in storm sewers, on the road, or on the ground.

These facts highlight the importance of recycling used motor oil. Oil does not wear out as many people think; it only becomes dirty. Oil that has been re-refined works just as well as new oil derived from crude oil.

antifreeze graphicAntifreeze

Used antifreeze is a toxic and potentially dangerous waste and should be treated as such. Antifreeze should not be poured on the ground because animals are attracted to its sweet taste, drink it and die. Always store antifreeze in a properly labeled antifreeze container, away from children.


Title VI of the 1990 Clean Air Act mandates that all chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), a type of freon, must be recovered when automobile air conditioners are serviced or repaired. It is illegal to vent freon from air conditioners into the atmosphere. Have your air conditioner serviced at a certified repair shop.
