USED LUBE OIL COLLECTIONS
FFS and our wholly owned subsidiary, Oil-X-Oil, collect used lubricating oils generated by automotive and general industry. We provide a collection service directly to industry using our own fleet of especially designed road tankers and we purchase used lubricating oil from a multitude of collectors who deliver product to our collection points.
The collected used lubricating oil is recycled into various products in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner.
