Title:THE DEFINITION OF USED OIL
RCRA Online Number:14090
Date:04/01/1997
To:NA
From:NA
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: The definition of used oil is based on criteria of origin, use, and contamination. Used oil must be derived from crude or synthetic oil; be used as a lubricant, coolant, heat transfer or hydraulic fluid, or similar uses; and be contaminated through use. Petroleum-based solvents are not used oil because they do not meet the use-based criterion (they are used as solvents and not as lubricants or similar uses). Antifreeze is not regulated as used oil, even though antifreeze may meet all three criteria.
