Transmission Fluid

Why Recycle

Transmission fluid, used to lubricate automobile transmissions, is mainly composed of mineral oil. Transmission fluid is flammable at high temperatures. Used transmission fluid contains environmentally toxic heavy metals, including lead. The heavy metals in used fluid can cause severe nervous system damage to wildlife and other animals if disposed of improperly.

To Prepare for Recycling

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

Where Does It Go Next?

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