New “No Cost” Program For Harbour Authorities
WHY NOT BECOME A COLLECTION FACILITY???
You haven’t registered? WHY NOT?? You are missing out on some CASH !!! Three months after you register as a collection facility you will receive $100 from UOMA-Atlantic. Also for every barrel of filters picked up by the collector you will receive $20. All you need to do once or twice a year is to send to UOMA-Atlantic your completed filter promotion form with a copy of the ticket showing pick up of the filters. The benefits:, no more paying to get these products removed and no more tipping fees.
Join over 120 maritime harbours who are proud of showing their community that they are GREEN and care about the environment.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
UOMA-Atlantic has registered collectors who go throughout your Province to collect the following products - used oil, glycol, their used containers of 50 liters or less, aerosol lubricant and used oil filters.
If you do decide to become a collection facility all you need to do is fill out the registration form and return it to UOMA. If you need barrels for used oil, glycol, filters and aerosol lubricants they will be supplied by your collector. The barrels are free of charge as is the pickup.
Let me emphasize that It is very important that all products be sorted and kept in their own barrels without any other contaminants. The collectors will not sort you products. If your oil or glycol is contaminated you will be charged to have it picked up.
WHO IS UOMA-ATLANTIC
UOMA NB, PE, NL, NS, represents a group of companies that sell the products designated by our program. Members, who are all Brand owners, provide financial support to the UOMA network consisting of collection facilities throughout NB, PE, NL and NS. UOMA is managed by a Board of Directors elected or designated as stipulated in the General By-Laws. We are proud to participate in efforts to protect our environment while giving these used products a second life.
UOMA’s mission is to manage an economically, environmentally, socially efficient, responsible collection, processing and user awareness program for used oils, used glycol, used oil and glycol containers with a capacity of 50 liters or less, used lubricant aerosol, brake cleaner and used filters, on behalf of its members.
All products are 100% valued and enjoy a second life. Containers are reused or decontaminated, recycled and reintroduced into other products such as agricultural drains, bins, composite construction materials, etc. The filters are compressed to extract the oil and sent to smelters. The oils are re-refined, regenerated or used as energy recovery. Remember that used oil, filters, containers and glycol contaminate our land and water. YES THEY WILL CONTAMINATE YOUR BREAD AND BUTTER.
