Saskatchewan has a network of nearly 200 year-round collection facilities and EcoCentres in approximately 165 communities. These are convenient drop-off points for what we call small generators. A do-it-yourself mechanic, a farmer or small business may have quantities of used oil, used antifreeze, filters and plastic containers oil/antifreeze/DEF that they can easily transport to a nearby collection facility.
Large agricultural operations, industrial, commercial, and institutional organizations are large generators with tanks or numerous drums of oil or antifreeze, drums of filters, and bags of containers. Large generators can contact any of the over 30 SARRC registered collectors, which are private-sector businesses registered to pick up used oil materials at source and transport them to over 40 government-approved processors/end users.
A Return Incentive (RI) provides registered collectors with an economic incentive to maximize the collection of used oil and antifreeze materials throughout Saskatchewan. The province is divided into seven (7) regions. Through the RI Freight Equalized payment, collectors are compensated based on volumes delivered and the region in which the used oil and antifreeze material was picked up.
