Is it illegal to dump used motor oil in the sewer?

Ive always dumped my used motor oil down the sewage drain in the street whenever I change the oil on my truck but today some jerk driving past started calling me all types of names said he’s reporting me to the police. I know it might be pollution and unethical or whatever but I just can’t be hoarding and messing around with dirty gunky oil in my house like some hillbilly.

    HE is RIGHT!!! A HILLBILLY would do what you have done! Use your EMPTY OIL CANS and fill them up with used oil and take them to an OIL CHANGE PLACE or PARTS STORE!~ They will collect it for you. P.S. you really are a HILLBILLY PIG! Think about what that oil is doing to the WATER SUPPLY! IDIOT! PUt some NEWSPAPER int he back of your truck or WASH IT! JEEZ

    There are no sewage drains in the street. They are called storm drains and end up in the closest body of water. It is illegal to pour toxic materials into storm drains. Dispose of the oil properly, or get your oil changed at a garage and they will deal with the used oil.

    The drained oil will kill all the harmful germs and viruses in the sewerage system, tell the authorities if they ask you lol

    yes.   That is illegal.  In a police state anything that is nor required is prohibited.  In the future just be careful no one sees you do that.

    It is illegal to do what you did. The car part store where you bought your fresh oil will take the old oil for recycling. The guy isn't a jerk and he did you a favor with the warning. If you ever get caught the fine is hefty. Avoid going to prison in the future by not dumping your oil in the sewer.
