Our Community Engagement team will be onsite at the Historic Hot Rod Reunion of BC taking place on Saturday, August 27, from 9am to 3pm at Mission Raceway.

Two BCUOMA ambassadors will be available to answer questions regarding BCUOMA, the importance of used oil and antifreeze recycling, and how to find used oil recycling facilities across B.C.

“The Historic Hot Rod Reunion of BC will bring four of the oldest car clubs together in B.C. for the first time in their history to celebrate 235 combined years of  hot rodding. Our onsite ambassadors are looking forward to being at this one-of-a-kind event and speaking with the auto enthusiasts about used oil and antifreeze recycling,” said David Lawes, CEO, BC Used Oil Management Association.

“Our knowledgeable ambassadors will be available to answer questions regarding the free, safe, and convenient locations of used oil recycling centres across B.C and provide visuals as to how used oil is re-refined into new oils. Event participants and spectators are invited to visit our booth to learn more about recycling our program materials, as well as enter a draw to win various prizes.”

BCUOMA would like to acknowledge that the Historic Hot Rod Reunion of BC is located on the traditional territory of the Sto:lo people.

Used oil is a valuable resource and if it is recycled at one of BCUOMA’s dedicated public recycling centres it can be recovered and re-used. Used oil can be re-refined into new lubricating oil or material inputs for manufacturing or energy products. Additionally, used oil filters contain metal, which is recycled into metal products like rebar, nails, and wire. Used oil and antifreeze containers are recycled and used to manufacture new oil containers, drainage tiles, and parking curbs. Used antifreeze is refined and reused as new automotive antifreeze.
