Waste Motor Oil Collection Sites
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Bureau of Waste Management are encouraging government agencies and businesses that change motor oil to volunteer to serve as waste oil collection sites (WOCS). A WOCS is a place where private citizens and do-it-yourselfers (DIY) can drop off waste motor oil in an appropriately-designed drum or tank. The collection site should be well marked to ensure that it is only used for uncontaminated lubricating oil and it should be serviced regularly by a waste oil transporter.
