Who is FindARecycler.org designed for?

This site is designed primarily for businesses and organizations that need their used oil, filters, anti-freeze or wastewater collected and responsibly recycled.

For small volume generators (less than fifty gallons), NORA suggests visiting www.earth911.com for a drop off location. Contact your state or local government for specific laws/regulations concerning restrictions on transporting these materials.

How do I use FindARecycler.org?

FindARecycler.org visitors will first identify the state or country where they need material collected. Then, you will identify the material you need recycled. The site will provide a targeted list of companies that are able to provide service with basic contact information. At this time, the site will focus on used oil, anti-freeze, wastewater and filters; however additional liquid categories will be added.

Why is a company’s address different from the location they are listed under?

Companies that engage in recycling these materials actively contribute to conserving renewable resources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting water equality, and lessen dependence on foreign oil/energy.

What is NORA?

NORA is a non-profit trade association representing over 395 leading companies in the liquid recycling industry. NORA was established in 1985 as the National Oil Recyclers Association with the primary mission of fighting the hazardous waste designation of used oil and aided in the development of the EPA's used oil management standards.
