A new used oil and antifreeze recycling facility has opened in Tilbury. Bridgeview Marine will now be accepting used oil, filters, antifreeze and containers for recycling at no charge.
On Thursday (April 8), BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA) announced that it had provided Bridgeview Marine with a “return collection facility” grant that provided the Delta business with a 10-foot modified sea container and 1,360-litre tank.
The new facility will provide people from Delta and the surrounding areas with an easy, free and eco-friendly system to return their used oil and antifreeze materials, according to a BCUOMA press release.
Used oil can be re-refined into new lubricating oil or sold as raw material inputs for manufacturing or energy products, while used oil filters contain reusable scrap and antifreeze containers can be recycled into new oil containers, drainage tiles and parking curbs. Used antifreeze, meanwhile, can be refined and reused as new automotive antifreeze.
