How To Dispose Of Old Or Bad Gasoline

Picture of a gasoline container. This blog post tells you how to dispose of bad or old gasoline.

Did you Google, “How to dispose of old gasoline”? How about, “How to dispose of bad gasoline”? Either way, we’ve got your answer right here! But first, a tale…

There was a ton of snow in Minnesota this past winter. We’re talking record amounts in some areas. This was annoying, but it also led to some serious flooding problems in the spring.

One of our friends got a raw deal when the snow melted and flooded his garage. Thankfully, nothing was seriously damaged. But there was one problem: Water got into a couple of gasoline containers!

How would he fill his lawnmower? Would he ever cut his grass again? The horror … The HORROR!

But seriously, he couldn’t use his gasoline anymore and he needed to get rid of it. So he emailed us and said, “Hey, cool recyclers. Do you dispose of old or bad gasoline?”

“Why we do not, kind sir,” We joyously replied. “We recycle many things, including appliances, electronics and more! However, we do not recycle gasoline. But we’ll help you find a place that will! What county are you located?”

“I live in Burnsville. So, Dakota County, I reckon!” He responded with peculiar fervor. We then summoned our special GPS pixies to locate the nearest hazardous waste recycling center.

“You, my treasured friend, should take the bad gasoline to The Recycling Zone in Eagan and they’ll take care of it!”

And so, onward he went. The recycling center took his gasoline and disposed of it properly. He re-filled the gas containers and mowed his lawn happily ever after.
