Each year, the UOMAs recover approximately 225 million litres of used oil. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in used oil recovery initiatives across the nine industry-led provincial stewardship programs.
This impressive achievement would not be possible without the strong engagement of UOMA members, collectors, processors and end users. Governments have developed policies and regulations that promote used oil recovery, businesses have invested in infrastructure and technology to facilitate recycling, and individuals have taken the initiative to recycle their used oil.
Here’s a breakdown of the amounts of used oil recovered within each province participating in the UOMA program in 2021. This chart represents the collaborative results as a whole, as we’re working together more closely than ever!
