Announcing our Top 30 Collectors for 2020

News

We are very excited to announce the winners of BCUOMA’s second annual Top Collector Awards. 30 B.C. Return Collection Facility (RCF) businesses received Top Collector Award plaques, and were honoured for their exemplary performance and commitment to the collection of used oil and antifreeze materials across the province throughout 2020. In addition, we added two new award categories in 2020 – Most Improved Award for the RCF that increased its collection rates by the largest percentage, and Long Time Service Award that recognizes six RCFs that have been dedicated program members since BCUOMA’s inception in 2003.

“These B.C. organizations are some of the most dedicated used oil and antifreeze Return Collection Facilities in Canada,” said David Lawes, CEO, BC Used Oil Management Association. “They continue to provide convenient, environmentally-friendly and easy-to-use infrastructures for their DIY customers to return their used oil and antifreeze materials. Their efforts were even more impressive throughout 2020 due to the pandemic, as they had to navigate their way through many additional challenges to ensure their customers were comfortable and safe while returning their materials. We feel proud to work with such professional businesses across the province, and we are honoured to provide them with these awards that recognizes their commitment to BCUOMA’s RCF program, and their continued outstanding performance.”

BCUOMA’s criteria for being a RCF top collector include:

  • the total amount of used oil, oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze and antifreeze containers collected at the RCF location.
  • the total number of years participating in BCUOMA’s RCF Program.
  • a demonstration of continued support of BCUOMA and other recycling stewardship related programs.
