Saskatchewan expands recycling program to include Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) containers

Niels Tholen - 23 September 2013

The Saskatchewan government has announced the expansion of its recycling program to include Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) packaging among other products. Used oil, used oil filters and used plastic oil containers are already part of the recycling program. In addition to the extended list of recyclable products, the size of containers has increased from 30 liters to 50 liters to reflect changes in packaging.

Saskatchewan Association for Resource Recovery Corporation (SARRC) Executive Director Phil Wrubleski said: "Antifreeze, DEF and antifreeze containers and diesel fuel filters are logical extensions of recyclable materials captured through SARRC's province-wide network of registered collectors and nearly 300 collection points."

The new regulations will come into effect on January 1, 2014 and will give manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers the possibility to recycle these additional petroleum products.
