    Juan’s discount oil change :)

    I’m guessing all it took was 6 ounces spilled to call in the hazmat team..being California and all.

    Wow, a whole hazmat team to haul away a pickup load of oil in buckets and shovel up a pail's worth of contaminated soil.

    Talk about a waste of money.

    Right! It doesn't even look like they actually "dumped" it. Looks like they just set the full containers on the ground, and maybe left some traces of actual oil in the dirt.

    Not that I am defending the perpetrators, but still...
     
    JoeyJunk, Vampire and Concorde Thank this.

    If you change your own oil it's getting hard to find a place that will take it.
    Auto parts stores around here will only take 2 gallons in 1 gal jugs.

    Should have put the buckets of oil in a black garbage bag, tie the top of the bag, put it in a dumpster somewhere. Put only one bag in each dumpster; harder to trace that way.
