Used Oil

State law (LB1257) banned disposal of waste oil in landfills beginning September 1, 1994. It’s estimated that five million gallons of used oil are generated in rural Nebraska each year. There is a need to prevent the soil, surface water, and groundwater in Nebraska from possible contamination or used oil.

The Nebraska Used Oil Collection and Reuse Program ensures that all Nebraskans can dispose of oil properly. Used oil collected through the program will be reused, recovered for energy, used in asphalt applications, or re-refined.
