Every single day millions of oil barrels are produced and disposed of across the planet, most of which end up in landfills where they live the rest of their days contributing to global pollution and posing a serious hazard to our health and the environment.

Although they don’t have enough of tread to grip the road like they used to, there’s still plenty left to give your metal or wooden outdoor stairs some extra traction – especially when wet.
