PG businesses awarded for safe storage of used oil

A pair of Prince George businesses have been recognized for how they handle used oil and antifreeze materials.

According to the BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA), Jepson Petroleum Ltd. and Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill are among the top 30 public recycling centre collectors in the province.

BCUOMA’s criteria for the awards included:

  • The total amount of used oil, oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze, and antifreeze containers collected at the public recycling location.
  • The total number of years participating in BCUOMA’s public recycling program.
  • A demonstration of continued support of BCUOMA and other recycling stewardship programs.

Jepson Petroleum Ltd.’s Williams Lake and and Quesnel locations were also listed.

“Over the past two years, the pandemic has significantly affected how our used oil recycling centres have been able to operate their businesses,” said David Lawes, CEO of BCUOMA.

“However, I’m extremely proud at how resilient they have been during these challenging times and how well they have continued to provide their customers with safe, easy to use, and convenient facilities where they can return their used oil and antifreeze materials.”
