JORDANA FRIDMAN and Sonia Sandhu stopped off in Terrace to spread their message about oil recycling for the Used Oil Management Association June 11.

Recycle used oil, anti-freeze, tires

Proper recycling of these items can protect our environment.

BRING IN your used oil and anti-freeze for recycling to protect the environment is the message that the Used Oil Management Association (UOMA) ambassadors are spreading this summer.

Jordana Fridman and Sonia Sandhu were here last week to remind everyone to also recycle their tires and to bring all those items into their local businesses, such as Fountain Tire, during regular business hours.

That also includes oil filters and containers.

The UOMA website says that 1 litre of used oil can contaminate 1,000,000 litres of water.

It also lists the degree to which the provinces and territories recycle these important items.

BC recycles 73 per cent of its used oil, 87 per cent of used oil filters, 87 per cent of its oil containers and 51 per cent of its used antifreeze, according to data from 2012.
