Summary: The NY State Environmental Conservation Law directs the proper handling, recycling and disposal of used oil, which includes any oil or lubricant product refined from crude or synthetic oil, including motor oil. Used oil is prohibited from disposal by the public. Most service stations and certain retailers are required to accept used oil from the public. The NY State Dept of Environmental Conservation regulates generators, transporters, processors, refiners, energy recovery, and transfer facilities that handle used oil. NYSDEC also provides standards for the marketing of used oil as a fuel. The State's regulations are based in large part on the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act management standards for used oil.
