Disposing of Lamp Oil Properly?

March 23, 2012

Old Oil LampI bought a new oil lamp from Wal-Mart, but the globe doesn't fit right and I only noticed after I filled the lamp with oil. Now I need to dispose of the oil and don't know of a good way to do this. What is acceptable from the recycling standpoint? The lamp is ruined and will also go into the trash.

I agree about saving the oil to use in another lamp. If you do want to discard it, you would need to check with your local waste management company or recycler for a hazardous waste collection site.. Your local government may also have this information.

You could join and offer it to someone who would like to have it in your area.

I would save the oil in a mason jar and take the lamp back to Walmart and ask for an exchange. Without a receipt our store will not refund, but they will exchange.
