Congressional findings: used oil recyclingThe Congress finds and declares that—
used oil is a valuable source of increasingly scarce energy and materials;
technology exists to re-refine, reprocess, reclaim, and otherwise recycle used oil;
used oil constitutes a threat to public health and the environment when reused or disposed of improperly; and
that, therefore, it is in the national interest to recycle used oil in a manner which does not constitute a threat to public health and the environment and which conserves energy and materials.
Section was enacted as part of the Used Oil Recycling Act of 1980, and not as part of the Solid Waste Disposal Act which comprises this chapter.
