What is a collection facility?
Collection facilities are establishments that register with UOMA NL to receive the designated products from small generators free of charge. These collection facilities are mechanical workshops, car dealerships but also many regional waste management authorities. UOMA NL has developed a network of over 137 collection facilities throughout Newfoudland & Labrador.
We congratulate the repair shops and the regional waste management authorities that agree to be a collection facility and offer the service free of charge to the population. It has never been easier to recover these products.
* For larger generators of used oil materials, there are registered collectors that will come to your site, farm, place of business and take the material to a registered processor.
