Oil Recycling Program



   The City of Canton’s Wastewater Treatment Plant accepts non-commercial, residential used oil for recycling. Canton residents wishing to dispose of used oil may bring their contained oil to the treatment plant and dispose of the oil in the designated tankage provided. First time users are encouraged to check with operating staff, for directions and regulations. Any and all persons entering or visiting the facility must sign in and provide identification.  Containers of oil brought to the facility must not leak and cannot be left at the site. Tanks and signs marked ”RECYCLED OIL” are provided on the site.


   This service is provided by the City of Canton at no charge. It is an effort to promote community awareness of the City’s Pollution Prevention Control Plan, and to encourage recycling. Oils and petroleum-based substances should never be disposed of in the sanitary collection system. Storm catch basins throughout the City have been marked, “DO NOT DUMP, DRAINS TO STREAM” in an additional effort to make residents aware of proper disposal methods. For additional information regarding the disposal of other materials, you may call the Wastewater Treatment Plant at 309-647-1391. Allowable times for disposal are from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm Monday thru Friday. The site will be closed for disposal on Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays.  The Wastewater Treatment Plant is located at 350 W. Hickory Street.
