Langley MP commends Aldergrove Return-It Depot’s environmental efforts
MP Tako Van Popta stopped by the Aldergrove Return-It Depot on Thursday afternoon to commend owner Sung Kim for providing residents with a BC Used Oil Recycling Association’s Return Collection Facility (RCF).
The Depot, located at 27482 Fraser Hwy, was one of the first Return-It facilities in the Fraser Valley to accept oil through a grant that provided them with a 20-foot modified sea container and two 1,000-litre tanks.
Kim told the Aldergrove Star that an overwhelming amount of people reacted positively to the option and have been coming to drop off oil from all over the Lower Mainland.
The RCF provides Aldergrove residents with an eco-friendly system to drop off their used oil and antifreeze materials.
BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA), a not-for-profit group dedicated to the collection and recycling of lubricating oil, oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze and antifreeze containers in BC, announced the grant on Dec. 17.
