How do we operate?

Government-Approved Program - No government funds are used for Canada's used oil materials recycling programs. The provincial associations (BCUOMA, AUOMA, SARRC, MARRC and SOGHU) generate their own revenue and manage their own funds and their own debts.

The programs reflect provincial Waste Management Advisory Groups' principles that consumers, industry and government share responsibility for environmentally sound management of used oil materials and ensuring the viability of their used oil materials recycling programs.

In British Columbia: BCUOMA operates the Used Oil Materials Stewardship Program in accordance with the requirements of the provincial Post-Consumer Residual Stewardship Program Regulation from the Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection.

In Alberta: The AUOMA program is approved by Alberta Environmental Protection under the Lubricating Oil Materials Recycling and Management Regulation.

In Saskatchewan: The provincial government, principally through Saskatchewan Environment (SE) regulates and monitors the SARRC Program under The Used Oil Collection Regulations enacted in June 1996.

In Manitoba: The provincial government, principally through Manitoba Sustainable Development, regulates and monitors the MARRC Program under the Used Oil, Oil Filter and Container Stewardship Regulation enacted in April 1997. Manitoba Sustainable Development maintains a registry of licensed return depots, EcoCentres, collectors and receivers of used oil materials.

In Quebec: SOGHU was incorporated in accordance with Part III of the Companies Act (Québec) to fulfil the requirements of the Regulation respecting used oil material recovery and reclamation. SOGHU is governed by the Regulation and by the Agreement with Recyc-Québec.
