used lubricating oil

What shoud lubricant users do with their used lubricating oil ?


Lubricating oil users shoud ensure that any used oil generated by their operations is stord securely and safely, and collected on a regular basis. Long term storage is discouraged. In addition:

  • Consideration shoud be given to bunding systems, impervious storage compounds, and sheltered or weatherproof storage.
  • Different types of used oil shoud be segregated when they are stored. The mixing of used oil with other cotaminants can create fire and health hazards, and shoud be avoided.
  • Users shoud organise for the collection of the used oil by a collector that is licensed, or otherwise authorised to collect and transport used oil.
  • Users shoud specify that such a collector transports the used oil to a licensed facility, such as a recycling plant, or other facility lawfully entitled to receive it.
  • Householders with small amount of used lubricating oil shoud check with their local councils as to which waste transfer centers accept used oil, or whether there are other collection points or services are available in their areas.
  • In particular, the following disposal processed shoud be avoided:
    • Uncontrolled dumping (outside authorised dumping facilities) on land, or into sewage systems or waterways.
    • Dumping in household waste disposal wheelie bins.
    • Unauthorised use a dust suppressant.
    • Use as a low-temperature burner fuel
