What is a Processor?

All the used oil and antifreeze materials collected in Saskatchewan’s industry-led stewardship program are recycled and reused.

Over 40 government-approved processors receive the four waste streams picked up by registered collectors.

  • Used oil is re-refined to lubricant quality. It is also used as industrial heating oil or reprocessed into other petroleum products.
  • Used antifreeze is reprocessed into new antifreeze.
  • Filters are processed at steel recycling mills and turned into other metal products such as construction rebar, angle iron and pipe.
  • Plastic containers are recycled into new containers, plastic durable goods such as flower pots, pipe, guardrail posts, fencing and patio furniture.
