Used automotive ﬂuids poison the earth if not properly managed and recycled. Used antifreeze is toxic. One litre of used oil can contaminate one million litres of water. That is why recycling these used oil materials is critical.
In Saskatchewan, itʼs easy to recycle used oil, used oil ﬁlters, used antifreeze and used oil, antifreeze and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) containers.
For do-it-yourself mechanics, farmers and small businesses, there is the province-wide collection network of 35 Used Oil, Filter, Antifreeze and Container EcoCentres, plus nearly 200 other independent locations that will accept used oil and antifreeze materials.
Whether you live in Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Alberta, Moose Jaw or any other town or city in Saskatchewan, thereʼs a collection point nearby.
For businesses and farmers generating large volumes, registered collectors will pick up used oil materials on site.
All materials recovered are recycled through registered processors. None of the materials go for landﬁll disposal or road oiling.
Since 1996, this industry-led stewardship program has been managed by the Saskatchewan Association for Resource Recovery Corp. (SARRC).
This is the excellent story of Canada’s unique and successful industry-led stewardship program that facilitates the recovery, recycling and reuse of used oil and antifreeze materials.
The video and booklet graphically describe the genesis and development of this globally recognized extended producer responsibility initiative. It’s a recycling success story that works environmentally, economically and socio-economically. Enjoy!
The program is working Environmentally, Economically and Socio-Economically.
