Used Oil and Filters

Used Oil if managed improperly can potentially contaminate drinking water. In fact, used oil from one oil change can contaminate 1 million gallons of fresh water – a years’ supply for 50 people! Moreover, used oil may be considered hazardous waste depending on how it is disposed of or mixed with other wastes. Below you will find resources to help owners and operators properly manage their used oil and filters.
