N.Y. Environmental Conservation Law Section 23-2308
Prohibited disposal of used oil


No person shall engage in the improper disposal of used oil. Used oil shall only be deposited in an available used oil retention facility or disposed of as otherwise authorized or permitted by the commissioner. The provisions of this section shall not apply to the use of used oil for maintenance or lubrication of agricultural equipment.


No person shall sell or offer for sale a used oil disposal kit or product which is comprised of absorbent material into which the lubricating oil from a vehicle is drained when performing an oil change and which is intended for disposal into the solid waste stream rather than for reuse or recycling.
