For Your Convenience

Saskatchewan has 36 purpose-built EcoCentres in major communities, plus 150 other drop-off points province-wide. These are convenient drop-off points for what we call small generators. A do-it-yourself mechanic, a farmer or small business may have smaller quantities of used oil, filters, used antifreeze, and oil/antifreeze/diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) plastic containers that can be easily transported to a nearby collection facility, and which may be too small for registered collectors to pick up.  For the facility nearest you, type your community name in black search box at the top of the page, click “search”, and then click on the interactive map that comes up. Or call SARRC’s toll free telephone number at 1-877-645-7275.

For large quantities, click on “find a collector” and use the interactive map for your region of the province to see which collectors operate there.

NOTE: SARRC attempts to update the list of drop-off locations at least annually. If a location no longer accepts any used oil/antifreeze materials, please let us know, because the location itself may not inform us of this, or that they have gone out of business, etc. Also, not all employees at a location may have the same information, and may tell you they don’t accept materials, when in fact the business does. Please let SARRC know, so that we can contact that business to confirm, and to correct possible misunderstandings.

Drop Off Courtesies

As a courtesy to your nearest collection point or EcoCentre, please remember:

  • CALL AHEAD FIRST.  SARRC does updates regularly, but locations and information can change, and a location may not let us know right away.  Not all locations accept all used oil and antifreeze materials. The materials a facility will accept are indicated on the Interactive Map and list when you do a search using the template, above left.
  • Confirm with the facility:
    • if it is still a free service
    • the materials and amounts accepted
    • the actual drop-off location, hours of operation, and availability of a drum pump if needed
    • if the amount of your used oil material is too large for your local facility, contact a Registered Collector who can arrange pick-up at your place.
  • Please return used oil, filters, antifreeze, and related containers only during the facility’s operating hours.
  • Ensure your used oil is not contaminated with such things as water, anti-freeze, paint or solvent.
  • For the recycling and disposal of household and other hazardous waste, see our “Quick Links” column, and also visit or contact your local municipal office to inquire if they have a program.
