Oil is commonplace, with all sorts of applications, whether that’s engine lubrication, hydraulic fluids, fuel oils, gear oils and more, so it’s important to make sure that you know what to do with the waste that’s created as a result.
Used oil has to be managed properly by local authorities or garages to help prevent contamination. By disposing of it appropriately this will stop potential harm to the environment. Used oil is insoluble and contains lots of nasty chemicals, which could make their way into waterways and contaminate drinking water sources if not handled carefully. It also takes a long time to degrade and may cause real harm to wildlife, so it’s important to be particularly careful where waste oil is concerned.
By choosing a responsible waste oil collection supplier such as Slicker Recycling, you can ensure your waste oil is recycled and reused, which is good for the environment and boosts the green credentials of your business.
The waste oil collected can be re-refined into a base oil which will then be used in the production of new lubricating oil - and the good news is that you don’t even have to lift a finger when it comes to the waste oil your business creates. You can arrange for Slicker Recycling, your waste oil pickup company, to come and collect it on your behalf, doing all the work for you, we’ll even do all the legal paperwork.
