New RCF opens in Abbotsford• RCF Program
The GFL Transfer Station & Recycling Facility located at 34616 Vye Road, Abbotsford, is now accepting used oil, antifreeze, filters and containers. The new infrastructure that has been installed will provide the residents of Abbotsford with an easy, free and eco-friendly way to recycle these materials.
The Return Collection Facility (RCF) infrastructure grant that GFL Environmental received from BCUOMA provided GFL Transfer Station & Recycling Facility with a 20 ft. modified sea container to facilitate the responsible collection and management of used oil, antifreeze, filters and containers.
“GFL Environmental is a leader in the responsible collection and recycling of used oil and antifreeze materials. They understood that the residents of Abbotsford needed a safe and environmentally friendly facility to dispose of their used oil; therefore, they stepped up and made sure that their depot had the infrastructure to accommodate their clients’ needs,” said David Lawes, Executive Director, BC Used Oil Management Association. “The new installed infrastructure is conveniently located and has detailed signage that explains the simple steps to properly recycle these items.”
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.
