Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring my Used Oil and other Recyclables to you?

Does my Used Oil have value?

Used Oil that’s kept out of the environment is the most valuable Used Oil there is because we all benefit by keeping our local communities and eco-systems clean.

What is the difference between Waste Oil and Used Oil?

You may use these terms interchangeably, but the strictest interpretation necessitates a significant distinction.

What should I make sure DOES NOT get mixed with Used Oil?
Solvents - Chlorinated solvents (even at small quantities) will turn Used Oil into Hazardous Waste. Be sure to supply your shop or facility with only non-chlorinated sprays, cleaners, etc. to be safe.
Water/Antifreeze – A certain small amount of these materials get mixed with Used Oil naturally, however to avoid additional fees for the handling/disposal of your materials, you should always keep your waste/recyclable materials segregated in appropriately LABELED & APPROVED containers.
