Used Oil Recycling Program

Used Oil Recycling Program

Texas lawExit the TCEQ prohibits dumping used oil on land or into sewers or waterways. This includes the use of used oil as a dust suppressant. Texas has also banned used oil filters from being placed in or accepted for disposal in a landfill.

The goals of the Used Oil Recycling Program are to:

  • increase participation of public and private sector organizations and companies as used oil collection centers;
  • increase collection of used oil by collection centers;
  • increase recycling by increasing the number of collection centers; and
  • provide education and technical guidance to the regulated community and the public.
