Oil Recycling Made Easy

We'll come and safely haul your used oil away

Got Used Oil?

Used oil of any kind needs to be recovered and prevented from entering the environment. Oil that is openly burned, poured down a drain, or improperly disposed of can create air pollution and contaminate land and water. Oil recycling helps to divert the toxic chemicals in oil from landfills. Used oil can be recycled as an oil base stock, reprocessed into other lubricating products, or used as fuel in large industrial burners and asphalt plants. The plastic containers can be cleaned and melted down into plastic pellets to be formed into new products. Waste Diversion is a leading provider of efficient, cost effective and turn-key solutions that helps its clients divert hazardous waste and hard to recycle waste from landfills.

Oil Recycling Matters

Used oil contains toxic chemicals and heavy metals and there is oil in almost every machine we use. If not properly managed, used oil will be Canada’s largest source of hazardous material. However, if oil is recycled, it not only stays out of water, but saves energy and allows it to become a valuable resource. It is therefore important to properly manage used oil in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

We are also a member of the Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) and can issue certificates of recycling. If you are a building manager these certificates of recycling can help your building get recognized or continue to maintain your ranking with associations like LEED and BOMA BEST.
