  • Waste Oil disposal

    Wondering how others dispose of there waste oil ?
    I was turned away from the waste recycle center last week and now have 4 x6 liters of waste sump oil to get rid of very tempting to dump them in the next doors bin on garage night

    A local mechanic might dispose of it for you, they may charge you a disposal fee though. All mine goes to the disposal centre at the local tip.

              I know what you mean by scam I have witnessed 2 full 8m2 containers of plastic bottles/ paper dumped down the hole with rubbish at the recycle center when I asked the tip manager why they did it he said the containers were full and they cant take all the recyclable stuff because there's no need for it That was the last time I ever separated my rubbish into ""appropriate"" bins

                  as i said, if it comes from the ground its welcome to be returned to the ground. dig a pit and add a couple of bags of stones to surface level , then you have your own oil waiste pit.

                    the fines for doing this in victoria in a private residence are upwards of $5000 NOWADAYS PLUS THE CLEAN UP COSTS, which are around $2000 a tonne of soil. 5 litres of oil can contaminate approx 5 tonne of soil.

                    Not worth it in my book, have seen people prosecuted for it when they tipped sump oil down the drain in their backyard, epa simply traced the stain back to the property and charged the owners after someone complained that the petrol station in front of the residence ( different properties an d streets but same but common fenceline). Mind you the EPA mad the service station conduct multiple tests to prove the contamination wasn't from the site ( at a high cost) before they simply followed the oil stain.

                      My local picks up recycling once a fortnight. They pick up my used oil at the same time. Supposedly, they only collect 5L bottles, however I've been putting 20L drums out for years without issue. They wouldn't take milk or soft drink bottles of it though (tried that once). I always make sure the drum is clean and clearly marked "used engine oil"
                      MY16 NX GLX5 with just a few bits added. My14 D-max spacecab, also with a few bits added.

                      Love from the dime a dozen, lonely army type/weekend warrior dude with a dual cab and all the same shit as everyone else who doesn't know any better. Thanks for the tip Bru.

                            My local tip takes it for free, but they say only 4 ltrs at a time. I normally take up to 100ltrs at a time with no problem.
