Websites are a part of every day life. And the website technology and design keep improving.
The new national UOMA website, www.usedoilrecycling.com, went live November 27, 2015. “Our national site, developed with responsive technology, channels visitors to all the seven Canadian UOMA’s.” says Phil Wrubleski, Executive Director, SARRC, who oversaw the site’s upgrade on behalf of the national association. “It’s a collaboration of the seven associations. We make it easy for visitors to find the information they need, in French and English, about our provincial programs using the technology they prefer to use.”
SOGHU’s updated website (www.soghu.com) takes on a new look and functionality. “Our website is the main portal for recyclers, members and various stakeholders in Quebec and Atlantic Canada.” says Gilles Goddard, Directeur general, SOGHU.
With the new site, visitors can select links to one of three provincial associations – Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island. Both Quebec and New Brunswick sites are available in French and English.
On the other side of the country, BCUOMA unveiled its new website (www.bcusedoil.com) in November. Executive Director, David Lawes, is enthusiastic about the association’s new site and look. “It’s dramatic. Catches visitors’ attention. And it directs visitors easily to the location of their nearest collection point. As well, the Home Page links to important business information and recycling initiatives.”
Currently, as in Quebec and British Columbia, both the AUOMA (www.usedoilrecyclingab.com) and SARRC (www.usedoilrecyclingsk.com) websites are being updated using current responsive programming. “This means one website will fit all platforms, from desktops to hand-held mobile devices.” notes Roger Jackson, AUOMA’s Executive Director. “When the AUOMA site was updated just four years ago, we required both a desk top version and a specific mobile website including URL. This newer programming greatly simplifies access for all visitors no matter what device they’re using.”
Either through the national site or the specific provincial sites, information about why, how, and where to recycle the potentially hazardous materials is just a click away.
