3462.  The Legislature finds that almost 100 million gallons of used
automotive and industrial oil are generated each year in the state;

public health and welfare.



3463.  It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this article
that used oil shall be collected and recycled to the maximum extent

used oil in order to conserve resources and preserve the environment.

3470, requiring any person who sells to a consumer more than 500
gallons of lubricating or other oil annually in containers for use
off the premises to inform purchasers by posting at or near the point
of purchase the locations of conveniently located collection
facilities.
   Such rules shall provide that in a county wherein 5 percent or
more of the population, as determined in accordance with the latest
Bureau of the Census information, speak a specific primary language
other than English, the signs shall be in such other language, as
well as English.
   (b) Establish, maintain, and publicize a used oil information
center that shall explain local, state, and federal laws and
regulations governing used oil and inform holders of quantities of
used oil on how and where used oil may be properly disposed.
   (c) Encourage the establishment of voluntary used oil collection
and recycling programs and provide technical assistance and, whenever
possible, financial assistance, to persons organizing such programs.
   (d) Encourage the procurement of rerefined automotive and
industrial oils for all state and local uses, whenever such rerefined
oils are available at prices competitive with those of new oil
produced for the same purpose.

persons possessing not more than five gallons at one time at no cost
to those persons.

of the Health and Safety Code is prohibited and is subject to
penalties pursuant to Article 8 (commencing with Section 25180) of
Chapter 6.5 of Division 20 of the Health and Safety Code.



3469.  The board, and every state officer and employee, shall

other state agencies, including, but not limited to, the Department

duplication in reporting and information gathering.
