What are Oil Drip Trays?

Oil Drip Trays are trays for capturing oil and coolant /anti-freeze drips safely and easily. They are a popular spill control product commonly found in workshops and garages (both commercial and domestic), as they’re excellent for collecting oils and fluids from cars and machinery.

They usually have a low height, so it's easy to fit them underneath machines. Most oil drip trays are made from tough plastic, and some models are made of metal.

How do Oil Drip Trays work?

Oil drip trays usually have a wide, shallow base to capture the oil and other fluids cleanly and safely. Some models are part drain pan, part container so the oil is held safely in an enclosed shallow box.

Other oil drip trays have a pouring spout to decant the oil, a handle, or wheels to move the drain pan around. These features are designed to make handling and moving the waste oil even easier and safer, with no risk of spills.
