What’s Interchange Recycling all about:

Interchange Recycling, formerly BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA), located in Victoria BC, is a collaborative, not-for-profit, producer-governed group that upholds the environmental objectives of our members. We collect and recycle the products they make and sell, which are then made available as new products from our members and other vendors.

At Interchange, we move forward through balance. Like a major highway interchange, there is a constant flow of materials arriving into the market and coming back into our operations. Likewise, we direct the traffic for members, government, collectors & processors, public recycling centres, and of course, the public. Currently, we recycle used motor oil, oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze, and antifreeze containers–and we’re always examining new automotive and industrial products to bring into our recycling process.
