Did you know that one litre of used
oil can contaminate one million litres of fresh water? Our municipality wanted to do something positive for the
environment, so along with the Rural Municipality of Hillsburg and the
Manitoba Association for Resource Recovery Corp we opened an Eco-Centre in March
An Eco-Centre is a facility that collects used oil, oil filters and empty
plastic oil containers. They are then refined into lube oil and other petroleum
products, that can be used in the production of asphalt for roads and highways.
There are more than 110 purpose-built Eco-Centres and more than 900 registered
collection points in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Our facility is located
on Highway #5 East beside B&P Sales & Service. It's hours are Tuesday,
Thursday and Friday, 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM and Saturday 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The
facility is operated by the folks at B&P Sales & Service.
We are proud of our involvement in this program and urge all of our area
citizens to do their part for the environment by safely disposing of these
