RFP – National Survey and Study of the Lubrication Oil and Antifreeze Container Circular Economy
Submission Closing: November 4th, 2019
The Used Oil Management Associations of Canada manage the collection and recycling of a very high percentage of the containers distributed in Canada to the residential and commercial sectors, creating a circular economy. Almost all oil and antifreeze containers distributed in Canada are single material HDPE plastic, which is easily recycled. Plastics, however, is a product material type that is subject to new and increasingly strict requirements, public pressure and possible bans. Understanding how packaging and product manufacturers are responding to the changing business and regulatory environment is important for circular economy policy development by the UOMAs. Material use bans (e.g. certain containers, bags, pouches) or plastic types could force manufacturing changes on products sold by UOMA members. Product redesign could allow for more container reuse or could have unintended consequences for recycling. The Used Oil Management Association want to better understand the full supply chain for oil and antifreeze containers, including potential design and material changes.
The BC Used Oil Management Association – along with three other Stewardship Agencies – have initiated a cost study to better understand the cost centers at private multi-material depots. The firm of MNP LLP has been retained to conduct the study. The participating Stewardship Agencies are responding to the Ministry of Environment’s guidance and directive that the costs of operating a multi-material depot be better understood and that depots be engaged in the process.
