Used oil has been legally classified as a "Hazardous Waste" with potentially damaging effects on people and the environment and thus it is of paramount importance that it is treated as such. Since its promulgation, the National Environmental Management Waste Act (Act No 59, 2008) has established fixed rules that govern how waste generators, collectors and processors handle used oil.
In line with these requirements we are proud to be accredited by and associated with the following industry defining organisations.

Several of our members have served on the executive board of directors both nationally and provincially. ORS is proud to be recommended by NORA-SA as an approved used oil collector.
