Oil Recycling:
Nunda Township Road District accepts used motor oil for recycling all year around during regular business hours.
Only waste oil will be accepted, no anti-freeze or other chemicals are allowed.

The waste motor oil is used in a waste oil heater to heat the Road District garages.
This helps cut down on heating costs and puts the waste oil to a good use.


Please contact the Road District office with any question that you may have.Map to Nunda
