Used Oil Depot New to Kimberley Transfer Station

Kimberley area residents now have a new option to safely dispose of used motor oils and antifreeze, with the addition of a used oil depot at the Kimberley Transfer Station.

“This new depot will be a more convenient option for residents to dispose of those products that should not be going into our landfills,” says RDEK Environmental Services Manager Kevin Paterson. “Used motor oil is highly recyclable. If it’s collected and returned properly, it can be reused again and again.”

Products accepted at the new used oil depot include used lubricating oil, oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze, and antifreeze containers.

The materials collected at the depot will be recycled through the BC Used Oil Management Association, which manages the used oil program in BC. 

Anyone with questions regarding the new depot can contact the RDEK at 1-888-478-7335 or visit engage.rdek.bc.ca/recycle.
