NORA-SA & Rose

One-man bakkie collector  with the equipment  received courtesy of  The ROSE FoundationThe National Oil Recycling Association of South Africa was formed in 2005 to provide a platform for all the industry's players to come together in the interests of establishing a sustainable and responsible industry. The players include the collectors, transporters, storage providers and processors of used lubrication oil, as well as interested and affected parties. Don Hunter was elected the association's first chairman and was re-elected for the maximum three terms.

NORA-SA has been busy engaging Government to ensure workable enabling legislation, producing documentation packs to assist in legal compliance as well as improving the environmental standards of operation. The collectors of the used lubrication oil, who constitute a large number of small and micro enterprises, have been provided with acceptable approved equipment in the form of hoses, drip trays, spill kits, fire extinguishers, placarding and personal protection equipment. They have also been provided with training in safety and fire drills, and with collection and delivery documentation books that will comply with the new Waste Management Act.
