Campbell River RCF gets an upgrade

RCF Program

North Island Lube, located at 975 Ironwood St., Campbell River, has received an upgrade to their used oil recycling facility. The new infrastructure that has been installed will provide the residents of Campbell River, and in the surrounding areas, with an easy, free and eco-friendly way to recycle their used oil and antifreeze materials.

The Return Collection Facility (RCF) infrastructure grant that North Island Lube received from BCUOMA provided them with a modified sea container to facilitate the responsible collection and management of used oil, antifreeze, filters and containers.

“North Island Lube made it a priority to provide their clients with an easy, and free facility to recycle their used oil and antifreeze materials,” said David Lawes, Executive Director, BC Used Oil Management Association. “The infrastructure that we installed for them is in a convenient location on their property, and there is ample signage that explains how to properly recycle used oil products. It is a quick and simple process that customers will greatly appreciate.”

BCUOMA’s RCF infrastructure grant program’s purpose is to ensure that there are sufficient RCFs across British Columbia for DIY consumers to take back their used oil and antifreeze materials for processing at no charge to consumers. The program also requires the responsible environmental handling, collection, transportation, storage, processing and recycling of used oil and antifreeze material using economic, efficient and environmentally acceptable options.

BCUOMA continues to look for opportunities to upgrade and improve recycling facility locations across the province in order to provide British Columbians with greater accessibility to convenient and free used oil recycling centres. BCUOMA has also created more signage at BC used oil recycling centres that explains how easy it is to recycle materials properly.
