When you think that just one litre of waste oil can contaminate one million litres of ground water, the only logical thing to do is encourage people to make sure that every drop of waste oil, every filter and every contaminated container is taken to a Drop-Off Center so that it is disposed of properly.
The Used Oil Management Association (UOMA) is a non-profit organization created to meet the requirements of the Regulation respecting the recovery and reclamation of used oils, used oil and fluid containers, and used filters.
UOMA is recognized by RECYC-QUÉBEC as an organization authorized to introduce an integrated program of recovery and reclamation for all applicable products, as well as a user information and awareness program.
Thank to all The Specialist repair shops that accept to act as a Drop-Off Center and offer this service for FREE to citizens.
