Used coolant and antifreeze collection

Engine antifreeze coolants are usually made from either ethylene glycol or propylene glycol, both of which are recyclable. Used antifreeze and coolant disposal treats this liquid waste as hazardous due to the presence of heavy metals from the engine 

Recycling used coolant and antifreeze

Automotive and engine workshops often practice one of two antifreeze glycol waste disposal management options: some workshops have a coolant recycling system for onsite processing, while others have a dedicated collection service. For cutting fluids, used coolant can be recycled and processed completely into new coolant.

Coolants can be recycled almost completely into new products, closing the loop on these hazardous chemicals. Liquid or gaseous residues are recovered and reused or recycled depending on the waste stream.

Cleanaway has the experience and expertise to handle any form of solid or liquid hazardous waste, backed by a specialist fleet of trucks and equipment. We can also provide consulting services on managing your chemical waste and other hazardous waste.
