Disposing of Waste Antifreeze

In the UK, you must not contaminate ground water with waste antifreeze or discharge to the fresh water sewer (drains).

You can only discharge to the foul sewer (toilet) if a special exemption is obtained from the local water utility. These exceptions are rarely granted for commercial waste.

Waste antifreeze can be disposed of at select recycling centres or by registered waste carriers.

Here at the Moosewerks we've partnered with Malary Environmental Services for Industry to collect and dispose of our waste antifreeze.

The base chemical in our antifreeze is endlessly recyclable. Keep it in use and out of the environment.🌍
