Protex Environmental has an important role in the recovery and recycling of used automotive fluids and materials from a wide range of customers and equipment. We collect various types of used oil, filters, antifreeze and empty fluid containers from rural properties, repair shops, construction sites, and dealerships. All used automotive fluids that we collect are processed to be recycled or for reuse at licensed facilities in Canada.
We can also provide you with products such as storage tanks, parts washers, lacquer thinner, windshield washing fluid, and antifreeze.
From used crankcase oil to transmission and gear oil, we will pump out a wide variety of your used oil materials from tanks or drums on a regular service schedule or on-call basis. We also carry a complete line of ULC-certified double-wall tanks for the safe storage and collection of used oil.
Used oil filters are covered under various provincial stewardship programs. We supply totes or drums for the accumulation of oil filters collected during oil changes. For fuel filters still containing fluid in the filter media, we supply drums for scheduled or on-call service collection. Filters that we accept are:
We collect and recycle used antifreeze from dealerships, automotive repair shops and farm yards. We can also provide you with new, warranty-approved antifreeze products in drums or in bulk. We also carry double-wall tanks approved by ULC for the storage and collection of used antifreeze.

We also supply the containers required for safely storing used plastic containers awaiting collection and recycling.
Protex Environmental's custom blend of premium lacquer thinner is trusted by prominent paint finishers across Saskatchewan. We supply and deliver thinner to our customers and can remove a variety of your used thinners and sludge for proper recycling and disposal. Recycled thinner blends are also available as an additional option.
We supply open-top drums for the storage and disposal of pressurized aerosol cans.
Absorbents and oily rags are often used to clean up spills of oil and different waste products. Environmental regulations require the proper disposal of the waste collected in these absorbents or rags. Protex Environmental supplies appropriately-sized and labeled containers for these materials as well as on-call or scheduled collection service.
Let us help to ensure your compliance with environmental regulations that require regular interceptor pit maintenance.
We remove collected sediment and wastewater from interceptors such as sump pits, catch basins, floor trenches and grease traps. We can also flush and camera-inspect associated pipe works to ensure optimal flow. Regular pump-outs prevent backups by ensuring proper flow of oily water and sludge into the interceptor. Our interceptor pit-maintenance service is available on a scheduled, call-in or emergency basis.
