We are happy to announce that Four Rivers Co-operative, located at 998 Railway Road, Prince George, B.C., received a grant from BCUOMA to upgrade their used oil recycling centre. The grant provided Four Rivers Co-op with a 20-foot modified sea container with a 2,200-litre tank to manage the responsible collection and storage of returned used oil and antifreeze materials. 

“It’s been great working with Four Rivers Co-operative, and we are happy to see their upgraded used oil recycling facility open to the Prince George community,” said David Lawes, CEO of the BC Used Oil Management Association. “Four Rivers Co-op continues to prioritize the needs of their customers and this new infrastructure provides an easy-to-use facility for residents to return their used oil and antifreeze materials.”

BCUOMA’s infrastructure grant program provides businesses with the infrastructure required to responsibly handle, collect, and store used oil and antifreeze materials using economic, efficient, and environmentally acceptable options. Municipalities, private businesses, nonprofit organizations, and other sectors interested in a BCUOMA infrastructure grant can find out more information at

“BCUOMA’s goal is to provide all British Columbians with a convenient, free, and eco-friendly way to recycle program materials,” said Lawes.
