What is a collection facility?
Collection facilities are establishments registered with SOGHU to receive the designated products from small generators free of charge. These collection facilities are mechanical workshops, car dealerships but also many municipalities. SOGHU has developed a network of over 1,074 collection facillities throughout Quebec.
We congratulate the repair shops and the municipalities that agreed 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.
