Gasoline and other flammable liquids are collected free of charge at designated recycling areas across BC as part of the legislated Product Stewardship program coordinated by Product Care Recycling. An eco fee is included in the cost each time a flammable liquid is purchased to cover the cost of safe disposal or recycling. A full list of what is accepted and free drop off locations is available on their website.

How do I go green?

Walk, cycle, or car pool, to reduce your carbon footprint and gasoline use. Don't idle. Use a push mower.

Check around before safely disposing of gasoline, as friends, family or neighbours may have a use for it. Gasoline that has been sitting for a while can be made usable by adding a stabilising additive or by adding new gasoline and using it for the lawnmower instead of the car.

Gasoline is part of Household Hazardous Waste collection at the Hartland Depot in residential quantities and at alternate locations listed. Gasoline will be accepted only in an ULC-approved gas can or jerry can. For safety reasons, the gasoline container cannot be returned to you at the depot.
Not all facilities listed below are part of the provincial program and may charge a fee for drop off. Contact facilities directly regarding restrictions and charges.

  • The Environmental Story

    Gasoline is a fossil fuel and non-renewable resource. Our cars release exhaust in the process that pollutes our atmosphere. If disposed of improperly, gasoline will seep into our groundwater and soils.
