Antifreeze, Gasoline, Diesel, Motor Oil, Brake Fluid, Transmission Fluid and Windshield Wiper Solution are all hazardous materials and should be disposed of as household hazardous waste. Antifreeze is toxic and must be stored in a closed container at all times. 

How to Recycle:

Carefully pour the used antifreeze into a clean, plastic jug with a screw-top lid. Secure lid on tightly. DO NOT mix motor oil or antifreeze with any other material (no water, brake fluid, solvents).

Uncontaminated antifreeze (up to 5 gallons accepted at a time at no charge), can be taken to the following location:

  • Chelan Transfer Station - 509.682.5631                                                 23235 Highway 97A, Chelan, WA                                                               Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 10AM - 4PM                                                      

If you're a Chelan County resident contaminated antifreeze should be taken to:

  • Chelan County Moderate Waste Facility - 509.888.1195                         3612 US Highway 97A, Wenatchee, WA                                                       Hours: Tuesday - Friday 9AM - 4PM &                                                     the 1st Saturday each month  9AM - 4PM

Contaminated antifreeze should be taken to a household hazardous waste facility or hazardous waste collection event.
