Recycling Used Oil is preferred over disposal as HHW. Used oil can be recycled, free of charge, at any AutoZone location among other outlets. Click here for a complete list of Used Oil recycling options in Muskegon County.
Lead Acid Batteries
LEAD ACID BATTERIES (i.e. car/boat batteries) are NOT accepted. These can be recycled at any recycling center and most auto parts stores.
Latex Paint is not accepted. The best way to dispose of paint is to use it up or recycle it! If you're purchasing paint for a project, consider the area you have to cover and use a paint calculator to ensure you're not buying too much.
If you have leftover (never-frozen) latex paint that you wish to recycle, you can bring it to the Solid Rock Housing Support Locations, to Port City Paints or RepcoLite Paints, Inc.
As a last resort, if you cannot find a use or recycling outlet for old leftover latex paint, it may be disposed of with your household trash as long as it is dried or solidified by adding kitty litter, (or other drying media) and leaving it open to dry in a well-ventilated area, away from children and animals.
