One of three units in Conn Brown Harbor is located at JBS Shrimp Co. While the larger tank is for oil-polluted bilge water, the smaller tank is strictly for used motor oil, which will be delivered to a recycling facility when the tanks are emptied into trucks. The tanks themselves are portable, mounted on a "skid," which allows them to be moved if necessary.
