Use those 1 gallon liquid laundry soap jugs that the wife throws out. They are perfect: the opening is wide so its easy to pour into, they are really sturdy, they seal very tightly. Three of them will handle an oil change. No muss, no fuss. The local auto parts place takes them and recycles.

Really???...would like to see the EPA paperwork on it......I was under the impression that they were banned in the US by the Feds. We get inquires at my agency at the beginning of every cold season.

Once I've collected enough to make the trip worth it, I drive down to Eugene and dump it in a storm drain. Actually, our local trash company has an oil recycling dump at the transfer station. I have no idea where it goes after I give it to them. No charge to get rid of it...

Here in Livermore, CA , Waste Management picks it up weekly with the other recycleables & Trash provided that you call them and use their containers. They provide two 1 Gallon milk jugs. So it takes two weeks to get rid of a porsche oil change.

Used to get curbside pick up here....problem was between the picker uppers, the containers used and the curbsiders, there was too much spillage.

Recycled engine oil gets separated to get out the heavy metals. Somehow they can then re-refine it to take care of the chemical by-products also. It is then good enough for fleet use. {Where is Mike/LubeMeister? He prob. knows how they do this}

I think there is or was an EPA loophole that allowed the burning of waste oil. Waste engine oil is about the last thing I'd want to burn... it is extremely toxic. (Unlike new oil, which is rel. non-toxic, tho I still reccommend oilive oil for your salad.)

Come to think of it, maybe that's what they use to make the corn dogs!

You may want to pour just a quart at a time dwn the storm drain. Surely Ma Nature can deal with small doses without global calamity........................

I think that is what cavemen did in the middle east a long time ago.

It has to be an EPA approved waste oil burner. Like I said they are inspected every three years. You can't just use your home heating oil furnance.
But out here I can still burn brush in my back yard.....
In fact I got a big pile to go burn this PM.

I assume that these are jokes about pouring a toxic waste (used oil) down a storm drain (these go directly to rivers where your kids swim and where people fish).

In case they aren't - there are some hefty fines and possibly jail time if you are caught. If I caught anyone on this board doing that, I would take them out with no compunctions.

Cavemen, of course, did not have internal combustion engines...

Here is the waste oil furnace used by the Chrylser dealer by me.

We have one (smaller) in the shop barn at my uncles farm as well.

They are certainly legal. Pay your entire winter heating on other people's nickel who come in for oil changes. You can even charge them a disposal fee. Hahaha!

"I assume that these are jokes about pouring a toxic waste (used oil) down a storm drain (these go directly to rivers where your kids swim and where people fish)..."
makes a nice tan on both children and fish

...if you are caught...
never get caught - what do we have Porsches for?

"If I caught anyone on this board doing that, I would take them out with no compunctions."
no threads other than forum threads please

"Cavemen, of course, did not have internal combustion engines..."
but they most likely drew them on their cave walls already, waiting for GM to copy them.


Santa Clara Couny has numerous recycle waste sites where you drop off your oil for free. Before I used to bring it to Kragen.

Oil change intervall- not every 3000 miles!
