‘Waste oil’ is the commonly used term for virtually the entire spectrum of used, surplus and discarded hydrocarbons.
Environmental statisticians believe that approximately 400,000 tonnes of waste oil is produced in the UK each year of which 85% is recovered, with the remainder escaping to the environment.
Waste oils are classified as Special waste and as a consequence, must be recovered and transported under the provisions of the Consignment note system, which is monitored by the Environment Agency in England and Wales and SEPA in Scotland.
Used engine and gearbox oils are collected from garages and workshops by these tankers, which are equipped to empty steel drums as well as conventional waste oil storage tanks.
