Tips for Easy Waste Oil Storage

Looking for an oil storage container to hold your company’s waste oil? Plastic-Mart offers a full range of the most advanced oil collection tanks on the market today, all of them manufactured to comply with applicable federal and state regulations on waste oil.

Ranging in size from 100 gallons to 500 gallons, our oil storage containers are versatile enough to be used for any of your waste oil needs. In addition to holding vehicle crankcase oil (what most people refer to as “used oil”), these containers are perfect for storing all of the petroleum-based or synthetic substances that are used for lubrication, heat transfer or hydraulic fluid (including brake, transmission and power steering fluids).

For smaller businesses, we offer a wide range of products to meet your needs, starting with the 100 Gallon Double Wall Waste Oil Tank, with a diameter of 35” and a height of 41”. We also offer 120, 150 and 200-gallon models, manufactured with the same high standards as our complete line of waste oil tanks. In addition, we also feature an extensive selection of secondary & spill containment solutions.

Larger businesses might opt for our larger models in 275, 360, 385 and 500-gallon sizes. The 275-gallon model has a 47” diameter and a height of 61”, while our biggest waste oil tank – the 500-gallon model – comes with a 53” diameter and a height of 81”. Don’t worry – our larger models (275, 360 and 500 gallons) come with forklift access bases, making them convenient to move around warehouses or industrial storage facilities. We also carry a full line of new oil storage solutions.

Regardless of size, all of our best-in-class waste oil tanks come with five key components: a black primary tank, a safety yellow container with “USED OIL ONLY” stenciled on the front, a 12″ hinged lockable manway, a 12″ x 1″ deep strainer basket, and 2″ bulkhead fitting with 2″ internal draw tube assembly with 2″ external male camlock connection.

At Plastic Mart, we don’t just sell waste oil tanks – we’re here to help you make sense of the sometimes confusing federal and state regulations that govern how any business must deal with waste oil. For example, most transportation facilities that generate used oil as a result of vehicle or machine maintenance are regulated as used oil generators and must comply with these federal and state regulations.

If you’re not sure how your business must store waste oil, we can help you with compliance options as well as help you with best practices on a state-by-state basis for waste oil containers. Even if you just have questions about rust, leaks or structural defects to existing containers, we can help. Also, if your business generates used oil that contains harmful contaminants such as benzene or lead that are typically picked up during the operation of a vehicle or machine, we can help you select the appropriate hazardous waste containers at Plastic-Mart to meet your needs.

You can either pick up the waste oil tanks from one of our convenient locations, or we can ship them to you, with the best freight rate guaranteed.
