Oil Burning: the Negatives

Did you know it is illegal to burn your waste oil to heat your garage without a permit?

Since 2016, the government has required anyone with a SWOB to get a permit for their burner to help offset the carbon emissions they produce by heating their site. 

Under Schedule 13A of the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2010, anyone with a SWOB must apply for and maintain a permit.

Firstly, you have to pay a £3363 application fee. After that, you are charged £1384 a year every year.

However, it isn’t all bad news. Oil Salvage Ltd can take your waste oil away for free. On our site, we process and recycle the oil. Our cost-friendly service is also environmentally friendly. 

With our waste oil collection, you don’t need to worry about neutralising the environment because we refine our oil onsite. We support the government’s aim to increase the amount of waste oil that is recycled.
