An oil waste tank is a tank designed specifically for the purpose of storing waste oil. The regulations regarding these tanks and how they are used to store oils are decided at both state and federal levels, so knowing the regulations is essential to choosing the right type, size and number of waste oil containers.
Investing in high-quality tanks is essential as they will be built to last without breaking or leaking and can help make waste oil management easier. The Tank Depot offers a selection of waste oil tanks from two of the top companies on the market, Chem-Tainer and Snyder. Tanks come in 100, 120, 150, 200, 275, 360, 385, 500 and 1,000 gallon capacities and are EPA compliant, according to CFR 40-279.22.
All the tanks from Chem-Tainer and Snyder are made of high-quality 100% recyclable polyethylene and feature a double-wall design. They won't rust, chip, or dent and can easily be cleaned with soap and water. Other things to note about the design of these tanks is that Chem-Tainer waste oil tanks offer a 110% secondary containment, while the Snyder tanks have a 120% secondary containment. Every waste oil container also comes with a debris strainer basket to keep solids out of the waste oil.
