Used Oil Collection Program
David Sutton-Used Oil Program Coordinator/Environmental Scientist 2
The Used Oil Collection Act of 1993 was enacted by the General Assembly in April, 1993 to reduce the amount of improperly disposed used oil by providing incentives to increase the number of public collection facilities for used oil across the State.
Today, do-it-yourselfers in Tennessee have access to more than 1,100 used oil collection and automotive fluid sites. Used oil is a resource with considerable value that can harm the environment if not properly managed.
Used oil  can be re-refined to lubricant quality motor oil, burned for energy recovery, or burned in specially designed space heaters. Many local governments save on heating costs by heating with do-it-yourselfer used oil in used oil in used oil fired space heaters at recycling centers and maintenance buildings.
