Oil Care Campaign prepares to celebrate 20 years

7-Liz-Hobday-430pxThe Oil Care Campaign will be celebrating its 20th anniversary at its conference and exhibition on 4th June 2015 at the National Motorcycle Museum near Birmingham.

The campaign was set up by the Environment Agency in association with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA), to reduce oil pollution by providing guidance on the safe disposal and management of oil. A network of oil banks which accept used engine oil for recycling has been established in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Organisers of next June’s event are offering the opportunity to support the campaign for £250. This will include a table in the exhibition room and entry for two people to the conference itself.

Since it was launched in 1995, the Oil Care Campaign has helped reduce oil pollution incidents across England and Wales from nearly 7,000 a year to under 2,600 in 2013. In the 12 months to April 2014 more than 37,500 people used the oil bank website to find the location of their nearest oil recycling facility.

Event and exhibition booking information is available from Oil Care Campaign manager, Liz Hobday at: liz.hobday@environment-agency.gov.uk
