The following are banned by state law from landfills: antifreeze, lead-acid batteries, tires, motor oil, and oil filters.

Antifreeze and oil filters are also accepted as part of the County Clean Sweep program for a fee.

Motor oil and transmission fluid are accepted as part of Clean Sweep at no charge.  Motor oil containers are not recyclable and should be thrown into the trash.

Lead acid batteries (automotive batteries) may be taken to any retailer in Wisconsin who sells them.  This may include some of the stores in the table below.  If you are not buying a battery, you may be charged a recycling fee by the store.  Scrap yards, listed in the yellow pages, also accept lead acid batteries, and depending on the market price of lead, may pay you a small fee.

The table below represents some businesses which accept anti-freeze, motor oil, oil filters, automotive batteries and tires.  It may be best to look in a phone book for additional auto service centers who could accept these items in your area.  If an Eau Claire County auto service center takes the materials below and would like to be added to the list please email your information to the Recycling Coordinator.

    AF = Antifreeze, B = Lead-acid Batteries, O = Oil, OF = Oil Filters, T = Tires
