A Collector is a business registered with the Atlantic Used Oil Management Association who we pay to pick up used oil and antifreeze products from large generators and participating drop-off locations and deliver them to Registered Processors for reuse and recycling.
Registered Collectors receive a set payment for collection of each product type and area of collection – we call these payments Return Incentives (RIs). These RIs are intended to cover the cost of collection. Periodically, temporary increases are applied to address rising costs. Click here to see RIs by zone and NEW temporary incentives.
