In choosing a used oil collector and transporter, it is very important to understand liability as "cradle to grave". Even though the used oil collection truck may leave a location with the used oil after pumping the used oil from the Generator, the liability of the used oil Generator does not end there. Generators of the used oil are still liable for the used oil until the used oil is recycled and sold per 40 CFR 279. In choosing a used oil collector and transporter, Generators of the used oil need to make sure that the company collecting and transporting their used oil is financially stable.

Generators also need to make sure that the company being used to collect and transport their used oil has a clean environmental record with all applicable Federal, State and local regulatory agencies who enforce 40 CFR 279 for the management of used oil. In recent years, Federal, State and local regulatory agencies have enforced all applicable regulations that apply to used oil collectors and transporters. The Federal, State and local regulatory agencies are empowered to inspect the used oil collectors and transporters facilities and environmental record keeping annually, and the regulatory agencies fine the used oil collectors and transporters that perform negligent, irresponsible and illegal actions.


The regulatory agencies have also prosecuted and imprisoned used oil collectors and transporters that are negligent, irresponsible and illegal in how they operate their used oil collection and transport companies. Most used oil collection companies facing stiff fines and environmental penalties are usually used oil collection and transport companies that have serious financial problems, and to save monies collect, transport and recycle the used oil, financially strapped companies resort to disposing of the used oil or used oily water illegally to save costs.
