    We had the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) visit us in the spring of 2012 to investigate a report that we were dumping waste oil down the drain….completely ridiculous, I get good money for my waste oil why in the world would I dump it into the sewer. I heard of a shop down the road a year prior getting checked out for the same thing. I did confirm with the 2 agents that came in they did receive an anonymous phone call that we were dumping waste oil down the drain. Of course we passed the inspection with flying colors, my guess as to who the anonymous tipper was, most likely a competitor. The DNR did ask for a years worth of receipts indicating who was taking our waste oil which we furnished without a problem. We did not receive any fines for this or for anything else either which was a relief.
