Used Oil Rules:
Waste Management and Radiation Control Laws and Rules

Current Used Oil Rules

The Solid and Hazardous Waste Act, Utah Code Annotated Title 19 Chapter 6 part 7, provides the Department of Environmental Quality’s Waste Management and Radiation Control Board the authority to make rules establishing the conditions and procedures for registration and revocation of registration as a used oil collection center, used oil aggregation point, or DIYer used oil collection center.

The Director of the Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control administers these rules.

Since the rulemaking process is continuing in nature, the reader is also directed to the Utah Administrative Rules Website where the reader can find the current administrative code, current and past additions of the Utah Bulletin, and code change effective since the last codification.

NOTE: References to CFR refer the Code of Federal Regulations (Solid Waste regulations are contained in 40 CFR 279).

Copies of the Code of Federal Regulations are available from the Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C., 20402 (telephone (202) 783-3238).
