Like to know where these "enviromental fee's" really go besides their bank account.
Actually, the environment fee has nothing to do with oil disposal. It has to do with the fee that is charged to purchase the oil. Each container of oil has an environmental fee attached to it when it is purchased. If you go to CT or partsource and buy oil, they will charge you an environmental fee. Even buy a computer monitor? They charge environmental fees on those too. So when you see an enviromental fee on your mechanic's bill, it is legit because that is the fee attached to the purchase of the oil. Same thing goes for tires.
I'm just a crazy m*thrf*cker, livin it up, not givin a f*ck, living life in the fast lane
