Mission

UOMA NS’ mission is to manage an economically, environmentally and socially efficient and responsible collection, processing and user awareness program for used oils, used glycols (antifreezes), used oil, glycol (antifreeze) and diesel exhaust fluid containers with a capacity of 50 litres or less (including aerosol containers used to hold a lubricant and a cleaner for automotive parts) and used filters, on behalf of its members.
