Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Michigan has adopted by reference the federal used oil management standards. The federal management standards cover all segments of the used oil recycling system and apply to generators, transporters, marketers, processors, and burners of used oil. Michigan has added several more stringent provisions in connection with the storage and mixing of used oil and hazardous wastes and is explicit as to disposal prohibitions and penalties.

Michigan has also enacted used oil recycling laws that establish disposal prohibitions and penalties. In addition, the state classifies used oil that is to be recycled (and that is not hazardous waste) as a liquid industrial by-product when it is accumulated, stored, or treated. Consequently, used oil handlers must comply with a few of the state regulations for liquid industrial by-products.
