WHEREAS private companies that collect large quantities of used oil are now charging  an increased collection fee; and

WHEREAS an increased fee may deter people from recycling used oil, used oil filters and  used oil containers; and

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Provincial Government to provide funding for the  collection of used oil, used oil filters and used oil containers to ensure that recycling of  used oil continues.
