Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some typical questions we get asked commonly by our customers. If you have a specific question that is not listed below, feel free to inquire on our Contact Us page.
The federal government regulates used oil through 40 CFR Part 279 - Used Oil Management Standards. Most states have adopted similar rules. Be sure to check with your state and local governments to ensure that all requirements specific to your business or situation are being met.
In almost all states other than California, used oil is a “regulated” material, but is not “hazardous” by definition. Be sure to research your state and local regulatory guidelines to be certain.
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.

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.
At this time, Noble Oil Services only accepts used motor oils.
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.
Yes. Our filter service provides state-of-the-art filter bins and totes versus the 55-gallon drum approach. This improves the look of our customers’ properties and helps to keep unsightly filter drums out of sight. Visit the Oil Filter Recycling page to find out more.
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.
