Larger amounts of used motor oil, oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze and antifreeze containers are eligible for pick-up through the BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA).Learn More
Used motor oil, oil filters, and oil containers are accepted through the BC Used Oil Recycling program, which is managed by the BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA). The materials can be dropped off at various collection depots throughout the province, which include participating repair shops, car dealerships, and retailers. These collection facilities can accept residential amounts (approximately 10-15 litres) per visit, free of charge; please contact them ahead of time to ensure they have the storage capacity to handle the volume that you have.
Visit RCBC’s Recyclepedia for drop-off options or contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline for all options available in your community.Learn More
If your community has curbside collection for food scraps, small amounts of used cooking oil can be soaked up in used paper towels or newspaper and then added to your curbside organics bin. If you do not have curbside food scraps collection, small amounts of soaked up cooking oil would go into your household garbage. If you are not sure if your community has a food scraps collection program, please contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline.Learn More
