Title:EPA REGULATIONS GOVERNING USED OIL COLLECTION AND RECYCLING
RCRA Online Number:14657
Date:03/18/2003
To:DeFilippis
From:Springer
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: The used oil management standards in 40 CFR Part 279 do not require retailers who sell automotive fluids (e.g., motor oil, transmission fluid) to collect and recycle those fluids once they are spent or taken out-of-service. Retailers taking advantage of the service station dealer's (SSD's) liability exemption under CERCLA are required to accept used oil from do-it-yourself (DIY) generators. Many counties and municipalities have collection and recycling facilities that accept DIY used oil. The Part 279 standards do not distinguish between synthetic and conventional motor oil. Both types are considered used oil when spent or taken out-of-service. EPA does not plan to mandate the use of synthetic oils over conventional ones.
