Greenwood Saw to Truck Repairs, located at 325 4th Street in Greenwood, B.C., received a grant from BCUOMA that provided them with an a 20-foot modified sea container with a 2,200 litre tank. This new public recycling centre provides the residents of Greenwood with an easy, free and eco-friendly facility to return their used oil and antifreeze materials.

“Dick and Linda Moore, owners of Greenwood Saw to Truck Repairs, understood that the residents of Greenwood, and the surrounding areas, were in need of a convenient used oil recycling facility. They proactively reached out to BCUOMA and requested the infrastructure grant to ensure that the new recycling centre was environmentally responsible and safe for their customers to return their used oil and antifreeze materials,” said David Lawes, CEO, BC Used Oil Management Association. “It is wonderful to work with such dedicated and community-focused businesses across B.C. like Greenwood Saw to Truck Repairs.”

BCUOMA continues to look for opportunities to upgrade and improve recycling facility locations across the province in order to provide British Columbians with reasonable access to convenient and free used oil recycling centres.
