§ 6901a.
Congressional findings: used oil recycling
The Congress finds and declares that—
(1)
used oil is a valuable source of increasingly scarce energy and materials;
(2)
technology exists to re-refine, reprocess, reclaim, and otherwise recycle used oil;
(3)
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.
