The British Columbia Used Oil Management Association is promoting the recycling of automotive fluids and filters in line with Global Recycling Day on March 18, 2023. The non-profit has been collecting and recycling used motor oil, oil filters, oil containers, used antifreeze, and antifreeze containers in British Columbia for over 20 years. Materials are reprocessed and repurposed in a closed-loop system with re-refined oil sold back to wholesalers and retailers in the province. Read how the program and its partners are an example of how a regulated extended producer responsibility (EPR) program can support private sector innovation, use proven technologies to develop economic growth, and support a circular economy in British Columbia.
