“Over the past two years, the pandemic has significantly affected how our used oil recycling centres have been able to operate their businesses. However, I’m extremely proud at how resilient they have been during these challenging times and how well they have continued to provide their customers with safe, easy to use, and convenient facilities where they can return their used oil and antifreeze materials,” said David Lawes, CEO, BC Used Oil Management Association.
“Our top collectors went above and beyond by upgrading their infrastructures to make collection more environmentally friendly, educating their customers about used oil recycling, installing new informational signage, and promoting used oil and antifreeze recycling in their communities. BCUOMA is honoured to work with such a dedicated group of business owners and managers across British Columbia who are passionate about providing their customers with great service, while also focusing on the environment. These awards are our way of thanking the top collectors in the province for continuing to do an excellent job!”
