There are many practical uses for used motor oil. A primary use is to rerefine it into a base stock for lubricating oil. The result is that the rerefined oil is of as high a quality as a virgin oil product. A secondary use of the used oil is to burn it for energy. Large industrial boilers can efficiently burn the used oil with minimum pollution.

It is illegal to dump motor oil on the ground, down the drain or sewer, or into any surface water or groundwater. You can be fined up to $1,000 ($2,500 for a business) and sentenced to 90 days in jail if you illegally dispose of used motor oil in Michigan.

Utilize these sites for proper disposal of your used motor oil. Please follow their instructions so they can keep the service available. Do not leave oil by the front door or in the parking lot when the business is closed.
