Oil Drain Pan

An oil drain pan helps to keep used oil from spilling. It should have a wide collection area, a place for the oil filter to sit while draining, enough capacity to hold at least one oil change, and a cap to prevent spilling during transportation to an oil recycling facility. Used oil is considered a carcinogen (causes cancer) and a hazardous waste. Warning: Always wear disposable gloves to prevent skin contact with used oil.
