Brake Fluid

Why Recycle

Brake fluid is a flammable product which contains solvents in the form of glycols. Brake fluid is a poison and, if ingested, may cause central nervous system depression and kidney failure. Used brake fluid contains lead and other heavy metals in addition to solvents. These heavy metals can pose an environmental danger if disposed of improperly.


Drain into a container with a secure lid for safe transporting to a drop-off site.

Where does it go next?

Most brake fluid is blended and used as an alternative fuel source.
