Waste Oil Recycling
Used oil is a major contaminant of the world’s waterways. When improperly stored or disposed of, it can leach into the groundwater, polluting drinking sources, killing aquatic life, and dirtying riverbanks and beaches. In fact, federal laws forbid incinerating used oil or disposing of it in landfills.
However, contrary to popular belief, oil is one of the world’s most sustainable resources. That’s because oil never wears out. It simply gets dirty.
When properly handled, waste oil can be recycled and repurposed, providing fuel and other resources to American companies again and again, both reducing our environmental footprint and our dependence on foreign oil.
And yet, more than 200 million gallons of oil are improperly disposed of each year. January Environmental makes keeping used oil out of landfills and in business easy and efficient. We’ll purchase your company’s used oil, and then using our custom bobtail trucks and specialized recovery equipment, our Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-certified waste management experts collect and transport your used oil to one of our state-of-the-art processing facilities, located in Oklahoma City, OK, and Nashville, TN. There, we use cutting-edge, ecologically sound filtering, demineralizing, and refining methods to remove heavy metals, dirt, water, and other waste particles. The refined, cleaner burning oil is then used as a fuel in industrial burners.
