Lorco Petroleum Services - Motor Oil Recycling

It is surprising how much used oil is generated each year - it is more surprising how much is improperly disposed of ... and how dangerous improperly disposed oil is to our water supply.

While looking at my local Honda dealership's website I can across their green activities.  Conicelli Honda notes on their website that they annually " ... recycle appx. 53,000 gallons of motor oil via Lorco Petroleum Services ... converting it into fuel oil ..."

"According to the National Oil Recyclers Association, 1.3 billion gallons of used oil is generated each year; Approximately 800 million gallons are recycled ... and approximately 500 million gallons are improperly discarded. One gallon of improperly disposed oil has the potential to contaminate 1 million gallons of fresh water."

"Lorco Petroleum Services takes this problem seriously. We recycle millions of gallons of used oil each year, converting it into fuel oil that not only meets but exceeds USEPA standards."

" ... collect your used motor oil, hydraulic oil, transmission fluid, fuel oil or even unused new oil ... no minimum or maximum quantity requirements ... transported back to our Federal Terminal for processing ... If ... hazardous, we can transport it to the proper facility for disposal. "
