Infrastructure Grants

BCUOMA continues to look for opportunities to upgrade and improve recycling facility locations across the province in order to provide British Columbians with reasonable access to convenient and free used oil recycling centres. 

Infrastructure Grants are available to registered municipalities, private businesses, non-profit organizations, and other sectors that require additional infrastructure for their public collection facilities, such as tanks, covered sheds or other containment materials for used oil, antifreeze, filters, and containers.

If you are interested in applying, please follow these steps:

  1. Review the RCF Infrastructure Grant Manual to understand your obligations.
  2. Complete the RCF Infrastructure Grant Application Form
  3. Send the completed form to

Facilities will be notified via email of the status of their grant application.

Note: If you are not currently registered as an RCF, you can apply by completing a registration application form and submitting it together with your Infrastructure Grant application form.

Round Up Grants

Used oil is collected at the City of Chilliwack Household Hazardous Waste Day event in 2019.

BCUOMA is pleased to offer grant funding to BC Regional Districts, Municipalities and community recycling organizations for their planning, coordination and execution of Community Collection or “Round-Up” events.

Grants of up to $1,500 per event are now available to qualified applicants as we continue to work with communities to increase the number of free collections events available to residents around BC.
