Oil gallon/chemical disposal?

I have a property that has 3 55-gallon used oil barrels. In the past we have put in bids, but the client would just leave them. This client wants them removed, and I am not getting any results on HOW to legally dispose of this debris. I am assuming the more difficult it is to get rid of, the more I can charge (duh). Can anyone help point me in the direction of legal disposal? TIA!

In the past I've used safetykleen. It's been a while but I believe that if you don't know for sure what is in the drum, They charged 750 for a 55 gallon drum. I think they also make you sign a waiver the saying that you know for sure that it's only used motor oil.

$750?? Seriously?
I'd start a new business tomorrow if I could get that kind of money for disposing of used motor oil here!

Iíve already told you more than I know.

$750 was the price if you COULD NOT verify what is in the drum. I'm not a chemist so I would not sign an affidavit when there is no way to know what who ever left it put in it. It's cheaper if it's motor oil but you better be sure or they'll hit your card for the full $750.

Someone will bid $200 and you'll find the cans rolled into the ditch somewhere. This is yet another problem with how this industry works... (or doesn't work)

More info for others that come across this. I put it in my CE and they said about $500 per barrel, which I sent to representative, and he came back saying client will only pay $150.00 each. I called safetykleen (thanks) and they quoted $500.00 to come out and test it, and then they will give a price per barrel- but I am thinking $750.00 a piece. So now I am waiting for the client to tell me to f*ck off...which I will gladly do

Check with local garages or scrap yard a lot of those garages and warehouses use used oil for heat.
You can rid of it for free used oil.

Agree with Big Trucker- a local concrete company here uses it for there oil burning heater in their shop. I used to bring it to them by the truck load and they loved it. I was getting $5 per quart for "disposal".

C'mon- just put them in the garage of another house that hasn't been trashed out yet. That's what the cool kids do... Well, or they roll them in the ditch.

NO, I do not actually condone doing either of those!!
