    It's not just Oregon, here in Klickitat County,WA, the transfer station and landfills no longer take oil, because someone dumped some PCB's in the tank. Cost them upwards of $150,000. This just happened within the last 6 months. From what I understand, the problem is not limited to just this area either, apparently it is happening over a lot of the Pacific NW. I learned about it from the owner of the local oil change shop. He said it was likely going to affect his prices as he might have to start paying for disposal.

    My town land fill, 15 miles from my house, will take all the waste oil I have for them. There is a small garage about 2 miles from my house, I found out they have a used oil burner to heat their shop. I now take my waste oil to the small garage and now they balance my tires and fix flats for free.

    Heat with oil? Just dump it in the tank. Works fine and saves money too.

    I wish I had a waste oil heater for my garage, but they are really expensive (at least to me) for a homeowners garage an finding one used is like unheard of.

    I was wondering how hydraulic oil would work as chainsaw bar lube. I was worried that it wouldn't be sticky enough, but your experience has been good??

    That sounds just like some idiot yo-yo...

    I took 5 gallons of used motor oil and 2 gallons of used cooking oil in the other day. I had it totally emptied into their tank and this counter guy comes back in a panic - "We can't take cooking oil!!!"

    hmmm - You mean they can take used motor oil with all kinds of metal particles, sludge, dirt, you-name-it, and they can't take nice clean cooking oil? I told them - no problem, it burns well on my burn pile.

    I put in a can of Motor Honey or STP in a gallon of used motor oil or hydraulic oil. It really helps keep the oil on the bar because it makes the oil cling.
