Subject: Used Oil Dumping

This is in response to a discussion that was going on in a local group. The information includeded in this is most likely of general interest .......

The discussion was about what to do with used oil, besides just dumping it in the back yards that is. Finding a service center that will take your oil is hard enough, especially when you just move into a new area. I wrote a letter to the EPA, asking what they recommend. The response that I got back was that there are numbers that you can call in your state that will be able to give you the name and address of a "registered" dump site local to you.

I suspect these may be just local EPA numbers, that's what the one from Texas was. Even then they were able to give me the name of the place less than a mile from my house.

What follows is the list of numbers. sorted by state..

I hope this list is of help, and again appologies for the large waste of net.bandwidth.
