Why Recycle? FAQ
Just one litre of used oil can contaminate one million litres of water. Since 1997, 1.4 billion litres of used lubricating oil, 116 million filters and 28 million kilograms of used oil plastic containers have been recovered, recycled, and reused responsibly in Alberta.

In Alberta, it’s easy to drop-off used oil and related materials. For do-it-yourself mechanics, farmers and small businesses, there are nearly 340 year-round recycling depots and EcoCentres. Whether you live in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Grande Prairie, or any other town or city - there's one nearby.

For businesses generating large volumes, there are many registered collectors available to pick up your used oil materials on site.

All materials recovered are recycled through registered processors. No used oil material goes to landfill disposal or is used for road oiling.

This industry-led used oil materials stewardship program is managed by the Alberta Used Oil Management Association (AUOMA).

The program is working environmentally, economically and socio-economically.
