Waste Management: Used Oils
Used oil is not
considered a hazardous waste unless it has been contaminated
with any other hazardous wastes or if the oil contains over 50
ppm of PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls). Otherwise, most used
oils can be recycled for reuse. EHS sends used oil collected on
campus to a facility approved to recycle or dispose of the oil.
Generators of used oil should minimize the amount of water in
the oil and be able to certify that no other hazardous chemicals
are present in the oil.
