Coal Oil

Fuels and fuel oils are petroleum products that are used in many types of engines, lamps, heaters, furnaces, stoves, and as solvents. Fuel oils come from crude petroleum and are refined to meet specifications for each use. Fuel oils are mixtures of aliphatic (open chain and cyclic compounds that are similar to open chain compounds) and aromatic (benzene and compounds similar to benzene) petroleum hydrocarbons. In addition, they may contain small amounts of nitrogen, sulfur, and other elements as additives. Fuel oils are distinguished from each other primarily by their boiling point ranges, chemical additives, and uses. Fuel oils include: Kerosene, Coal Oil, diesel fuel, home heating oil, and gasoline. All fuels and fuel oils should be disposed of as a hazardous waste.

WHERE DOES IT GO NEXT? Most fuels and fuel oils are blended and used as an alternative fuel source.

If you live in Clark County or one of its cities, you may dispose of unwanted household hazardous waste products at any of the following HHW collection sites or events. Eligible senior and citizens with disabilities who are unable to transport HHW to a collection site or event may call (360) 397-6118 ext. 4352 to see if they qualify for a free home pick up. Business-generated hazardous waste will not be accepted.

To dispose of your HHW products at a county-sponsored disposal site:

• Keep HHW products separate (do not mix).
• Bring products in their original containers when possible.
• Seal products to prevent leaks and spills.
• Keep products away from the driver and passengers, i.e., in a trunk, truck bed, or trailer.
• Keep children and pets away from collection sites and events.

• Exceed 25 gallons or 220 pounds of HHW per event.
• Bring unlabeled, empty or leaking containers, asbestos, explosives or ammunition, radioactive or infectious waste, or business-generated waste to the collection site.
