He brought it inside to dump into some waste oil jugs. He was tired of having a stranger in the neighboring site peeping on him.

Well with one minor exception I agree with you.. Or is that a major exception and this by the way is what I very strongly suspect the Original Poster thinks happened.

IF he poured it down the drain be it black or gray and thus into the ground water.. That is a violation of the environmental laws in EVERY state.

On the other hand.. I very strongly suspect there is a way to re-use used motor oil for other legal uses.. Just as to what they are I would rather not say as I am only about 10% sure on the one I'm thinking of.. (Will google it cause I like doing research but will not post results)

My used motor oil ends up in containers and is then recycled through my chain saw to lubricate the chain. I cut alot of wood to heat the stick house so getting double duty out of the oil saves a bit of $ as well.

Hey, I think I saw that on the CBS 48 Hours Murder Mystery episode last week. Good move on not leaving any DNA evidence behind.

The O.P. is just a concerned individual. Poor guy must be saying "sorry I asked" by now. Me? I wouldn't have done nothin' in that situation.

Ok in my earlier post I liked, I said I was not going to research the exception.

Turns out there are heaters specifically designed to use used motor oil to provide heat... One assumes that in Alaska, heat may be needed.

In fact I am in Southern GA and given the current weather.. Good chance I'll need heat this evening.
