As we are all aware, the current situation with COVID-19 has caused a rapid change in how businesses operate. Here at SARRC, administrative support and program operation continue including timely provision of incentive payments. To date, collectors are still picking up large quantities of used oil, filters, antifreeze and containers according to their own precautions to maintain appropriate physical distances.
However, the situation with public drop-off locations is more fluid. Some EcoCentres and volunteer drop-off locations may be temporarily closed or operating with reduced hours. As each location is independently operated, please call ahead to make sure they are open. Also, please consider waiting to recycle your materials and storing them safely until the situation returns to normal.
