On-Site Reclamation

The DFS On-Site Reclamation Program consists of reclaiming fluids on-site at the customer’s facility. This process is a completely self-contained operation making use of one of the fleet of Mobile Reclamation Units (MRUs). A typical On-Site program consists of the customer collecting leaking fluids and storing them in DFS provided tanks. When the oil is collected in volume, DFS will perform reclamation of the fluids at the facility, returning the reclaimed oil to clean tanks for reuse at the customer’s convenience.

Off-Site Reclamation

The DFS Off-Site Reclamation Program is designed so that smaller volume customers can realize the same benefits as those using our On-Site program. The reclamation is performed at the DFS facility and is EPA and DHEC licensed. The oil is batch processed and is never combined with any other oil. All oil is tracked by a chain of custody to ensure the integrity of our customer’s products.


A typical customer profile consists of the following:

• Annual purchases of 1,000-6,000 gallons (one product)

• Has leaks that can be captured and segregated

• Performs regular lubricant change out (PM)

• Can generate 550 gallons per batch processed (2 totes)
