Over 450,000 tonnes of waste oil is produced in the U.K. per annum. The majority of this is recovered and is burnt as a fuel.
The Waste Incineration Directive (WID) is having an impact on this process, as many of the current users of the recovered oil are not compliant with WID.
Grundon Waste Management Ltd is able to continue to offer the disposal of waste oil, with its end recovery as a fuel.
The Ewelme hazardous waste transfer station, in South Oxfordshire, accepts waste oil in loads from 1 litre to 18,000 litres, in both containers and in bulk. It is equipped with specialist equipment that extracts the oil from containers, thus enabling even small cans of waste oil to be accepted, bulked and recovered.
Having the above resources, the Technical Department is able to offer a collection service for any volume of waste oil, irrespective of how it is contained. We can also supply a wide range of containers for on-site collection and storage.
Waste oil filters are also recovered and once processed, the constituent parts recycled. They are stored in 205 litre drums, before being consigned to a specialist company, where they are compacted in a large oil filter press. This separates the oil from the metal, thus enabling both constituents to be recycled.
We can supply 50 litre and 205 litre drums for the on-site collection and storage of oil filters, with an exchange service once they have been filled.
Our operational area for oil and oil filter collections covers most of the U.K. All hazardous waste enquiries should be sent to the Technical Department, at the Ewelme depot:
