Does anyone do this type of work or know who to call. Thanks.

the stain and paint are a little harder esp if the oil paint has lead.

old car batteries? fuggetaboutit
OP, many recycling centers will pay you .25 a pound for lead acid batteries. Search for a recycling center in your area.

Track Auto, Autozone, etc. all take used oil as do County reclamation areas.

Batteries - Waldorf metals. The rest - local transfer station.

Only one?

What if you come back several Saturdays in a row?

Have any friends that live in MoCo? The Shady Grove facility will take all of that, no fuss. There's a place to stack the batteries, tanks into which you can dump the petroleum-based stuff, and a manned HazMat table where you can hand over anything paint/solvent/stain related. We show up with jugs of nasty acid and some ungodly solvents and other carcinogens ... they just smile and say thanks. Any MoCo resident can drop stuff off there. If it looks like a commercial activity, that changes things.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. If my beater truck was running at the moment I would take your advice and dispose of this stuff as suggested. At the moment I only have my VW golf and I don't want to put that crap inside and make multiple trips. I was hoping for someone to take it all off my hands in exchange for cash.
Worst case I will wait until I get the truck road worthy and then take the stuff for disposal.
In the mean time if anyone is interested I am willing to pay a couple hundred plus any disposal fees.

Who are you using for oil pickup? Heritage hit me at .60 a gallon plus a truck fee of 50 dollars. A rep from Origin came by and offered me .35 a gallon pick up and no truck fee. That could have been a one time thing though to try to steal me away from Heritage

If you’re interested in trying out origin, they’re based in baltimore I’ll pm you the contact info of the rep that came out and told me .35 a gallon. Every little bit helps these days.

It’s funny when these oil recyclers are doing it free based on high crude prices, it took forever to get them to come out. When they charge a high price they’re stopping in all the time checking the tank.
