Used Oil Management
National Summary
RCRA's used oil management standards serve as a guide to used oil handlers (generators, transporters, burners, marketers, processors, and rerefiners) for storage, recordkeeping, and cleanup procedures. The used oil rules are based on the presumption that used oil (oil contaminated by chemical or physical impurities as a result of use) will be recycled. These rules presume that used oil containing more than 1,000 parts per million of total halogens must be handled as a hazardous waste.
