Alberta has a network of nearly 230 year-round recycling depots and EcoCentres throughout the province. These are convenient drop-off points for what we call small generators. A do-it-yourself mechanic, a farmer or small business may have small quantities of used oil, filters and plastic containers that can be easily transported to a nearby recycling depot. For the depot nearest you, click on the Interactive Map. Or call AUOMA’s toll free telephone number at 1-888-922-2298.
As a courtesy to your nearest drop-off point or EcoCentre, please remember:
- Not all locations accept all three materials (oil, filters, containers). What materials a facility will accept are indicated on the Interactive Map.
- Call ahead first. Confirm with the facility:
- if it is 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 to pick-up these materials directly from you.
- Please return used oil materials 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 materials, please contact your local municipal office.
- If you wish to become a drop-off location in Alberta please call AUOMA at 1-888-922-2298.
