Second Used Oil Recycling Depot Opens on Salt Spring Island


We are very excited to announce that a new used oil recycling depot has opened at Salt Spring Garbage and Recycling Services, located at 360 Blackburn Rd on Salt Spring Island, B.C. This depot now contains a 20 ft sea container and one 2,200 litre used oil storage tank for the responsible collection and storage of returned used oil and antifreeze materials.

“Our ability to properly recycle and re-introduce used materials back into B.C.’s circular economy is important work that requires growing infrastructure to enable the safe collection, handling and storage,” said David Lawes, CEO, Interchange Recycling. “This is the second depot that will be available for Salt Spring Island residents to drop off program materials, making it more convenient and easy to do the right thing.”

“Many Salt Spring residents are do-it-yourselfers,” said Cory Kohlman, Owner and Operator, Salt Spring Island Garbage and Recycling Services. “We’re a creative community and for those that choose to change their own motor oil, this depot makes it safe, convenient and easy to do the right thing. Residents can return their used oil and antifreeze materials at this location free of charge, making sure they don’t end up in our environment and waterways.”

Interchange Recycling would like to acknowledge that Salt Spring Garbage and Recycling Services is located on the unceded territory and ancestors of Coast Salish First Nations of Salt Spring Island.
