Return Collection Facilities

Changes to the Return Collection Facility Program Incentive Rate

Effective January 1st, 2017, the new Return Collection Facility incentive program for consumer returns changed to $0.30/L for oil and antifreeze (from $0.10 for oil and $0.15 for antifreeze).

For facilities that collect only consumer material (e.g. depots) the new rate applies to all the material collected.

For facilities that self-generate oil and antifreeze through their business (e.g. service stations, lube shops) and receive consumer returns, the incentive applies only to the portion of material dropped off by a consumer. These facilities will need to provide evidence of the volume of consumer returns either by providing a consumer drop off log sheet (see sample on BCUOMA website) or by subtracting the service change volume from the collector Bill of Lading or using another method approved by the Executive Director.
