Radiators function as the main part of your vehicle’s cooling system, transferring heat from the engine. In order to do this, however, radiators must be filled with a mixture of water and antifreeze
, which is made of ethylene glycol or propylene glycol. Both of these petroleum based products are poisonous and a danger to the environment. When disposing of a used radiator from your vehicle, make sure you empty it first into a sealable container, to prevent contamination of soil and water. Dispose of radiator antifreeze at the Hartland Hazardous Waste Drop-off Facility.
