What is a Collector?

Registered Collectors

Large agricultural operations, industrial and institutional organizations are large generators with drums of used oil, bags of filters and containers. Large generators can contact any of AUOMA’s registered collectors, private-sector businesses authorized to pick-up used oil materials at source and transport it to government-approved processors/end users.

Return Incentives

Return Incentive (RI) provides registered collectors with an economic incentive to maximize the collection of used oil materials throughout Alberta. The province is divided into six (6) zones. Through the RI Freight Equalized payment, collectors are compensated based on volumes delivered and the region in which the used oil material was picked up.
