Oily Clean-up Materials

(Last Updated: 8/23/2018)

​Prevent fires by safely storing and disposing of clean-up materials covered in oil, oil-based paints and stains, or other flammable liquids. See instructions for oily rags instead.

Allow large items (rollers, tarps, etc.) to dry by placing them individually outside on the ground. Once dried, they can go in the garbage in a sealed bag. Do not store wet flammable items bunched together and exposed to the air, as they can combust.
