Recycle your used oil.

Just like a dinner plate or a pair of shoes, used oil can be cleaned and used again and again and again. All it takes is one simple drop-off at one of our Return Collection Facilities.

We’re the British Columbia Used Oil Management Association (affectionately known as BCUOMA) and we’re a not-for-profit group dedicated to collecting and recycling lubricating oil, oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze and antifreeze containers in BC.

Our goal is to provide you with an eco-friendly and cost-effective way to dispose of our program  materials and keep everyone safe. Each year, approximately 50 million litres of oil and 3 million litres of antifreeze are collected and responsibly managed through our program.

In 2019, we collected the highest total amount of used oil in the program’s history.
