Tiffany and I had a great time visiting Nanaimo yesterday. We met with all 10 collection facilities in the city (use the map on the right to see the return collection facilities).
Today we visited Chemainus, Crofton and Salt Spring Island. Neither of us had been to Salt Spring before so it was an exciting visit to Ganges.>
After Salt Spring, we headed south toward Duncan where we popped into some more return collection facilities. The Canadian Tire gave us a thorough tour of their facility.
Contradictory to the title, there was no shine at the car show today, however the rain did hold off! We were very thankful!
We had a great day at this event. We handed over a hundred oil spouts and recycling pamphlets that describes all of British Columbia’s recycling programs- a very useful resource.
This was the first official community event that we both attended, and we were really happy with all the help we received.
Welcome everyone to the kick-off of the 2011 B.C. Used Oil Management Association Summer Ambassador program! Throughout the summer, two ambassadors (Amara Janssens and Tiffany Rennick) will be traveling all across the province to promote the message that a single drop makes a big impact. Here is a little bit about these ambassadors:
Hometown: Langley, B.C.
