RECYCLING


Melfort EcoCentre

The Melfort EcoCentre is located at the landfill on the Highway 41A bypass west of the city.  It accepts used oil, oil filters and plastic oil containers and pails under 30 litres in size for recycling, at no charge, from farmers, do-it-yourselfers, and small business operators.  The EcoCentre accepts up to 500 litres of used oil per delivery, with no minimum amount required and there is a drum pump to empty your barrels.  The EcoCentre is open during landfill hours - please contact the landfill attendant at the kiosk upon arrival.
 
The EcoCentre meets regulated environmental standards, and has secondary containment for oil spills and drips from filters or containers.  Please do not contaminate your used oil with things like solvents, paint or paint thinners, bleach or other household chemicals, antifreeze, gasoline, pesticides, or water.  Contaminated oil can not be accepted because it is unsuitable for re-refining.

For more information, call the City of Melfort, Works & Utilities Department at 752-5911 or the Melfort Landfill at 752-3242.  If you have larger amounts of used oil materials to recycle, please call 1-877-645-7275 for information about trucking companies that provide pick-up, or go to www.usedoilrecycling.com.

Paint Recycling Program

The Province of Saskatchewan has issued a Waste Paint Management Regulation. The regulation requires the paint industry to manage a consumer take-back program in Saskatchewan for leftover household paint.  The Program is managed by the paint industry through their non-profit association, Product Care. Product Care's members include manufacturers, distributors, and retail. Paint can be dropped off without charge at any of SARCAN's depot locations across the province. Please check www.sarcsarcan.ca/sarcan/paint_recycling.php for program guidelines.

 
In addition to the above programs, Plus Industries also accepts newspaper, cardboard, glass and tin at the SARCAN recycling depot.
