Who needs to register?
The Government of the Northwest Territories is responsible for making sure used oil and fuel is managed in a consistent and environmentally sound manner.
Used oil may contain high levels of contaminants that could be released into the environment if it is burned in used oil burners. Therefore, you must register your used oil burner in the NWT, in accordance with the Used Oil and Waste Fuel Management Regulations.
What do I need to do?
If you are generating used oil, you must ensure only used oil suitable for combustion is consigned to registered used oil burners.
If you own a used oil burner, you are required to have a representative sample of your used oil analyzed to make sure it meets the requirements of the Used Oil and Waste Fuel Management Regulations.
