Common Types of Used Oil
Be aware that used oil from one oil change has the ability to contaminate one million gallons of fresh water. But it’s not just automobile oil that’s dangerous to the environment: cooking oil, natural gas production oil, and waste industrial oil require specific hazardous waste removal procedures.
Depending on how you use, store, and create waste in your commercial directly correlates to whether or not you have hazardous waste. Testing should occur before disposal to avoid fines or penalties.

Used oil is regulated as hazardous waste if it exhibits any of these characteristic properties: ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity
2. What is the difference between used oil and waste oil?
Used oil is oil that has been used and is no longer suitable for its intended purpose, while waste oil refers specifically to oil that has been mixed with a known hazardous substance.
3. What are examples of used oil?
Examples of used oil include motor oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic oil, and other lubricating oils that have been used and are no longer suitable for their intended purpose.
If any of these lubricants were mixed with chemicals or other hazardous wastes, they require proper handling and disposal procedures.

The 4 hazardous waste lists are:
- F-list (waste from specific industries)

- U-list (waste from specific sources).
These four classes are part of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations in the United States.
5. How do you handle used oil waste?
Handling used oil waste involves proper labeling, storage, and transportation to ensure that the waste is not accidentally released into the environment.
HWH Environmental provides disposal, removal, and transport services to protect you and your business from unwanted fines and regulation failures.
6. How do you dispose of hazardous used oil waste?
Disposal of hazardous used oil waste is typically done through a licensed waste management facility that is equipped to safely manage and dispose of hazardous waste.
This may involve treatment to remove any hazardous properties or secure disposal in a landfill designed for hazardous waste.
Proper disposal of hazardous used oil is important to prevent contamination of soil and water resources and should be conducted only by a qualified hazardous waste removal company.
8. What is the RCRA?
Improper disposal can result in the contamination of soil and water resources, as well as pose risks to wildlife and other sensitive populations.
Additionally, individuals and organizations that fail to properly dispose of hazardous waste may face penalties and legal consequences under regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
7. What happens if you do not dispose of used oil waste properly?
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) is a federal law in the United States regulating hazardous waste management and disposal. The RCRA sets standards for the generation, transportation, treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous waste to protect human health and the environment from the potentially harmful effects of hazardous waste.
“I own my own business and over the past several years, I’ve done work with three different disposal companies. There was bad communication with these three companies. The job always ended up never being completed. I also encountered multiple billing issues with one of the companies. I’m glad that I found HWH Environmental because they walked with me every step of the project. Thanks again!”
Allan T. – Indianapolis, IN

Melinda J. – Denver, CO
“Working in NYC can be tough due to the large population. I work for a large factory and I contacted over 10 hazardous waste companies that offered disposal services. I wasn't able to get an estimate or get a straight answer from any of them. I’m glad that a colleague recommended HWH Enviornmental to me. They responded quickly and gave us a fair price. Thank you!”
Kristin L. – New York, NY
“If you are looking for a quick answer and a great price, call HWH Environmental. I was a little hesitant to work with HWH because they didn't call me back. However, when I did get in contact with them, they apologized and scheduled service right away. I had a building that was leased out to a dental office, which had produced a great deal of medical waste. HWH Environmental disposed of the waste in no time.”
Morgan R. – Charlotte, NC
