Recycling Oil Waste

We’ve assembled a panel of plant operations experts to answer any question you have on plant-floor issues.

I’ve been thinking of trying to recycle some of my oil waste. What should I look for to create a viable and economical plan?

  • Like any sound business decision, there are numerous factors to consider when choosing the right oil recycler for your company. Some things to keep in mind include:
    Check the company’s records to confirm it is a state-approved used oil handler.
  • A vendor must be registered as a transporter if it is collecting and transporting waste oil. 
  • Request a certificate of insurance to make sure the company is properly covered in case anything happens. 
  • Confirm the vendor has a responsible system for tracking waste streams it collects. If the vendor abuses the waste stream responsibilities, the end consequences will fall back to the originator of the waste (your company).
