Washing your car and cleaning parts at home can send detergents and other pollutants through our storm drain system.
Dumping automotive fluids into storm drains has the same results as dumping the materials directly into Long Island Sound.
Instead, consider using a commercial car wash that treats or recycles its wastewater, or wash your car on your yard so the water infiltrates into the ground.
Repair leaks and dispose of used automotive fluids properly.
We encourage you to recycle antifreeze, motor oil and batteries at the Westport Transfer Station.
