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

Community Round Up Event Grants

The BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA) is pleased to announce an increase in grant funding available to BC Regional Districts, Municipalities and community recycling organizations for their planning, coordination, and execution of Community Collection or “Round-up” events. Several BC communities currently hold round-ups or community collection events for a wide range of products and materials, including household hazardous waste.

BCUOMA has increased support for the collection of oil and antifreeze program materials by providing $1500 per event and will also provide event marketing support including advertising material, event signage and social media support.

BCUOMA will continue to provide a volume based financial incentive to the registered collection company that is selected by the event organizers to collect and transport the material to a BCUOMA registered processing facility (recycling facility). To find a list of the registered collectors that serve your area of the province please click on the map on our Registered Collectors page.

If you are interested in applying for a Round-up Grant, please send an e-mail request to and include the following information:

  • the lead organization for the event
  • the location and date for the planned event(s),
  • which other stewardship associations will be participating.
