cutting oil; lubricating oil; transaxle fluid; differential oil; motor oil; transmission fluid; gear oil?
If you do, use the information in this publication to help make the best choices in managing them. Used oil can easily be contaminated with other types of waste and if managed improperly may threaten the safety of you, your co-workers, or the environment. It can also place your community at risk.
