Used Oil Filter Handlers

Basic requirements for those who handle Used Oil Filters.

Used oil filter handlers are used oil filter transporters, storage facilities, and processors of used oil filters. Texas Health & Safety Code, Chapter 371 Subchapter E (Sections 371.101-105). Exit the TCEQ Used oil filter handlers must register every two years by January 25 of even-number year using the Registration for Used Oil Handler and/or Used Oil Filter Handlers Form (TCEQ-10062). A used oil filter handler is also required to provide proof of financial responsibility upon registration.

No later than January 25 of every even-numbered year, used oil filter handlers must report to the TCEQ the amounts of used oil filters received during the previous two years. 

The storage time at storage facilities is 120 days and allows generators to store used oil filters in one bulk container greater than 330 gallons. TCEQ can grant two year variances on storage volume and storage time limits for used oil filters.

These rules do not apply to an industrial generator that is registered with the TCEQ as an industrial or hazardous waste facility or to a do-it-yourselfer.
