The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is adopting new rules at N.J.A.C. 7:27-20, Used Oil Combustion, and amendments to N.J.A.C. 7:27-8.1, Definitions, N.J.A.C. 7:27-8.2, Applicability, and N.J.A.C. 7:27-8.6, Service fees.
The adopted rules and amendments are intended to reduce the incidence of improper disposal of used oil and ensure if used oil is burned, it is done without significant harm to the environment or public health and welfare, and in a manner that is consistent with the Federal regulations. The new rules limit used oil combustion to those units best able to burn it in an environmentally sound manner. Provisions in the rules will minimize the impact to public health and the environment by providing specific requirements for the combustion of used oil.
