Oil Recycling Oil Recycling

It’s common practice for people to recycle plastic, paper, glass and aluminum. However it’s not so common for people to be in an oil recycling routine. An oil recycling routine is hard to start and keep up with because we are not used to it. However, when done there are many benefits to oil recycling.

Many people that dispose of oil throw it out with their regular trash or dump it into a sewer. The problem with this is that it has a huge negative effect on the environment. Even if thrown into the regular trash the oil usually seeps through and goes into the ground contaminating it. People who throw oil down in the sewer do much more damage to the environment. To show what an impact it can have try to imagine one million gallons of water. That is the amount of water that one small gallon of oil will contaminate. Try to imagine all of the oil that gets into the sewers from people around the globe and you have a serious problem.
