Used Oil Recycling Program
Effective April 1, 2003, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador banned lubricating oil from waste disposal sites.
Oil that is poured down the drain, openly burned, or disposed of with household garbage, can contaminate land and water, and create air pollution. The Used Oil Recycling Program ensures proper disposal of used oil, as well as recycling and reuse of the product. Once collected, lubricating oil can be recycled and reprocessed for use again as a lubricant or fuel.
In Newfoundland and Labrador, residents can return used lubricating, crankcase, gear oil, and transmission fluid to an oil retailer, free of charge.
Used oil is a resource, not waste, and should be recycled.
