    Mine too. I pour the waste oil into a 5 gallon old hydraulic oil bucket. Then take the bucket to dealer. They pour it in their large tank and hand me the bucket back.

    I usually wait until dark then dump it near my tree hugger trouble maker neighbors well that we all hate. Ok, that's not true, Our local transfer station takes it with no questions asked and I've never asked what they do with it but they are into recycling. As far as our neighbor goes they are exactly what I said and just to piss them off I got a bumper sticker for my hummer that says "my carbon footprint is bigger than yours".. he hates me and everyone else in the neighborhood which is very sparse,, city boy trying to be a country he man. He wouldn't touch oil if his life depended on it. He has an electric lawn mower too. sorry to go off track but you all know me by now!

    Oil comes from underground.
    So dumping waste oil back onto the ground is the purest form of recycling that there is.

    so fast forward a few yrs of me doing this-and someone turned me in for it--township came told me i had to quit it-so i didn't go the whole way down our lane to the township road---that lasted for a couple yrs--and they showed up again.

    so then for dust control i got me several bags of urea at farm burea in town--had way more hand work with using a shovel-but it worked good. so glad i don't share a lane no more.

    We were small farmers, so we only generated 30 gallons of waste oil/year. (give or take)
    This 30 gal/year turned a 10' x 20' area of gravel to an asphalt like surface. Grass in the surrounding area totally unaffected.

    Our neighbor at the lake had access to waste oil from a service station, and we literally covered the road by our places with oil once/year. Again, an asphalt like surface with grass thriving right up to the edge. We had shallow sand point wells for our water that everyone drank, water quality was un-affected.

    My point.... using oil as dust control in a responsible manner will not harm a thing.........except your wallet if some ass clown busy body decides to be a tattle tail.

    Used to be a fairly common and effective practice to oil roads.

    Sure it will get into something, eventually.

    Won't be a fast as the stuff they are injecting into cattle & hogs. Chickens just aren't real anymore.

    The things we used to do that have been deemed unsafe or improper have been replaced by much more advanced methods of chemical poisoning.

    Around where I live they still do the oil and either sand or stone thing. I suppose the oil is some type of approved oil just for roads! There are also recycling businesses that take contaminated dirt and extract the oil or gas and make a "cold" asphalt product for driveways etc.. How can that be safe? I know an auto body/repair shop that stained their building with used motor oil years ago and it still looks like the day they did it.. stinks when applied but he didnt care, it's a business building not a house where you would open your windows. he has since moved to SC and I bet he did the same thing there.
    Anyway I recycle my used oils and fluids as stated at the transfer station. I don't want to pollute anything. Here in Ma, the DEP or EPA would throw you in jail for doing so,, they love their jobs. You can't even have a burn barrel anymore to get rid of your paper trash that go to the dump!
