A Processor is a government-approved company with the capacity to process one or more of the used oil materials. The company must demonstrate its capability to contribute to the manufacture of value-added recycled products.
Recycled plastic containers are processed and reused in different ways. When pelletized, the plastic is used to manufacture new plastic oil containers. Washed plastic flake is used in new durable goods. And oily flaked plastic goes into products such as impact posts, curbs and landscape ties.
All filters collected are processed at steel recycling mills. The steel is used in the manufacturing of construction, industrial and agricultural products.
The used oil can be recycled as an oil base stock, reprocessed into other lubricating products, or used as fuel in large industrial burners and asphalt plants.
