The BC Used Oil Management Association just announced the opening of a new recycling facility in Delta, providing free oil and anti-freeze recycling to residents. Bridgeview Marine—located at 6435 River Road—received an infrastructure grant from BCUOMA providing them with a 10-foot modified sea container and a 1,360-litre tanks. This new RCF will provide the residents of Delta and the surrounding areas with an easy, free and eco-friendly system to return their used oil and antifreeze materials.
“Delta residents can now conveniently return both small and large amounts of their used oil products to Bridgeview Marine, at no charge,” said David Lawes, CEO, BC Used Oil Management Association. “Trevor Smith and the rest of the team at Bridgeview Marine continue to ensure that their customers are equipped with all the necessary services at their disposal, and this newly installed used oil recycling infrastructure is a perfect example of their commitment to the Delta community.”

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. BCUOMA’s RCF infrastructure grant program requires the responsible environmental handling, collection, transportation, storage, processing and recycling of used oil and antifreeze material using economic, efficient and environmentally acceptable options. Municipalities, private businesses, nonprofit organizations, and other sectors interested in BCUOMA’s RCF new infrastructure grants can find out more information at https://bcusedoil.com/infrastructure-grants/.
Used oil is a valuable resource and if it is recycled at one of BCUOMA’s dedicated RCFs it can be recovered and re-used. Used oil can be re-refined into new lubricating oil or sold as raw material inputs for manufacturing or energy products. Additionally, used oil filters contain reusable scrap and antifreeze containers can be recycled into new oil containers, drainage tiles, and parking curbs. Used antifreeze can be refined and reused as new automotive antifreeze.
About BC Used Oil Management Association
Formed in 2003, the British Columbia Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA) is a collaborative, not-for-profit group dedicated to the collection and recycling of used lubricating oil, oil filters, oil containers, used antifreeze and antifreeze containers in BC. Each year approximately 50 million litres of oil, and 3 million litres of antifreeze are collected and responsibly managed through BCUOMA’s network of public Return Collection Facilities (RCFs) and generators across the province. Assisted by manufacturers and first sellers of oil and antifreeze products, BCUOMA’s goal is to provide all British Columbians with a convenient, free and eco-friendly way to recycle program materials. 99 per cent of British Columbians currently have reasonable access to an RCF. A comprehensive listing of all of the RCFs across B.C. can be found at https://bcusedoil.com/find-a-recycling-centre. For general BCUOMA information, visit https://bcusedoil.com.
