Does my Used Oil have value?

From a monetary standpoint, each situation is different depending upon such factors as  market conditions, volume, frequency, quality, proximity, number of locations, etc. As such, each customer we work with is evaluated on a case-by-case basis as to whether there is value or not.

Is there a minimum amount of Used Oil or other materials required to work with Noble Oil Services?
Noble Oil Services is a commercial service provider using large trucks to facilitate its operation. In most instances anything less than one (1) U.S. Drum (55 Gallons) should be taken to your local DIY (Do It Yourself) Recycling Center. If you’re not sure or would like a recommendation for an address to the nearest DIY location(s), please contact us.
Does Noble Oil Services accept “Cooking” and other “Vegetable” based Used Oils?

At this time, Noble Oil Services only accepts used motor oils.

What should I make sure DOES NOT get mixed with Used Oil?

Solvents - “Chlorinated” solvents (even at small quantities) will turn Used Oil into Hazardous Waste. Be sure to supply your shop or facility with only “non-chlorinated” sprays, cleaners, etc. to be safe. A certain small amount of water and other materials tend to get mixed with Used Oil. Naturally, however to avoid additional fees for the handling/disposal of your materials, you should always keep your waste/recyclable materials segregated in appropriately LABELED & APPROVED containers.

Does Noble Oil Services collect used oil filters?
Yes. Noble’s filter service promotes state of the art filter bins and totes versus the 55 gallon drum approach. This improves the look of our customers’ properties and help keeps unsightly filter drums out of sight. Visit the Oil Filter Recycling page to find out more.
Can I bring my Used Oil and other Recyclables to you?

In some instances yes. However, it’s a good idea to call Noble Oil Services facility to double check. If not, they should be able to direct you to an appropriate Recycling Facility to meet your particular needs.

If I change my oil myself, where can I take my used oil to ensure it's recycled properly?
