However, a number of challenges still remain in making the program truly national. For a thorough analysis of the situation, please click here.

And this is where we need your help.

NUOMAAC has developed a confidential survey to:

  • Determine our members’ satisfaction with the current UOMA program and;
  • Gather data on the desire of Ontario stewards to establish a UOMA-style filter, antifreeze, oil and antifreeze container recycling program.

For the survey, please click here (survey closed).

Take a moment and give us your feedback before November 30, 2016. If you are not the UOMA contact for your company, please forward this newsletter and survey to the UOMA Program Contact for completion of this survey. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
