CHETWYND, B.C. – The Chetwynd Recycling & Bottle Depot has upgraded its facility for used oil recycling.

The facility’s new infrastructure will provide residents of Chetwynd and surrounding areas an easy, free, and eco-friendly way to recycle any used oil and antifreeze materials.

BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA), a not-for-profit group dedicated to collecting and recycling lubricating oil, oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze, and antifreeze containers, made the announcement on Tuesday, January 5th.

The BCUOMA provided the facility with the Return Collection Facility (RCF) infrastructure grant, which went towards a 20-foot modified sea container with a 2,200-litre tank, which replaced the outdated infrastructure.

The RCF infrastructure grant program requires the responsible environmental handling, collection, transportation, storage, processing, and recycling of any used oils and antifreeze using economic, efficient, and environmentally acceptable options.
