Recycle your used oil.

Doubts. Musings. Misconceptions. Call them what you want, but over the years, we’ve fielded a fair number of odd questions about reusing motor oil.

And still recycling is the best answer. It’s the safest, most efficient and most cost-effective way to reclaim the value of our motor oil. All you need to do is drop your used oil off at one of our Public Recycling Centres or take your car to be serviced at a certified oil change shop.

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.
