Carl O Donnell and Chris Plant of the Fort St. John Co-Op, which has received two modified sea containers to serve as an oil and antifreeze recycling centre in the city.

Two newly upgraded public recycling centres will provide Fort St. John residents with easy, free, and eco-friendly systems to return their used oil and antifreeze materials, the BC Used Oil Management Association says.

The Fort St. John Co-Op recently received grants from the BCUOMA that provide a 20-foot modified sea container and a 2,200-litre tank at each of its locations at 7315 100 Ave., and 10808 91 Ave.

The Co-Op was recognized as both a Top Collector, and the Most Improved collector in 2020 for increasing its collection rates by the largest percentage.

“They continue to show their dedication to their community and our stewardship by upgrading their facilities in order to make it even easier and more convenient for their customers to return their used oil and antifreeze products,” said BCUOMA CEO David Lawes. “It is a pleasure working with such a professional and committed organization.”

The Association says 50 million litres of oil, and three million litres of antifreeze are collected each year through its network of facilities across the province.
