Used motor oil can be recycled at the Goldendale transfer station on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. BZ Corners and Dallesport transfer stations are not accepting used oil at this time. Napa Auto Parts in Bingen and Brownings shop east of Goldendale on Highway 142 will accept uncontaminated used oil from the public. If you have used oil that may be contaminated, label it as contaminated, and take it to any of the transfer stations. Tell the attendant that your oil may be contaminated. They will accept it at no charge.
