New used oil and glycol recycling program launched

Last year Recycle NB vowed to implement an oil and glycol recycling program by January 1, 2014. Well it’s done!  New Brunswick has added its second Extended Producer Responsibility Program.

Instead of every brand owner setting up a recycling program, there is one common program for the province. By having one program for the whole industry, there will be cost savings, a level playing field for industry, and province-wide recycling depots for consumers. What’s not to like about that?

In New Brunswick, SOGHUOMA manages the new recycling program on behalf of the oil and glycol brand owners. Since the government designated oil and glycol under the Clean Environment Act, we have worked with industry to develop a program that meets the needs of New Brunswickers. Now that it is up and running, we hope everyone will make use of it to recycle these products.

This program is another step in making sure that all waste materials in New Brunswick are managed in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way. Recycling these products will contribute to the sustainability of our environment and reduce the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills.

Recycle NB has a great partnership with SOGHUOMA and the Department of Environment and Local Government.  We worked together every step of the way to make this program a success for New Brunswickers. 

At Recycle NB, we are MOVING BEYOND WASTE. Our mission is to manage waste reduction programs for designated materials and provide environmental stewardship for New Brunswick. With the oil and glycol recycling program, we just got a little closer to our goal of a waste-free New Brunswick!
