The Toronto Transit Commission awarded Safety-Kleen Canada Inc. a three year contract to recover and rerefine 600,000 liters (U.S. 159,000 gallons) of used lubricants generated annually by the commissions fleet. Terms of the contract announced last week were not disclosed.
Since 1989, the agencys fleet has used between 500,000 and 740,000 liters of Safety-Kleens rerefined lubricants annually. The interesting thing in this announcement is that we have been supplying lubricants to the Toronto Transit Commission for many, many years, Dale MacIntyre, vice president of refining for Safety-Kleen, told Lube Report. This is the first time weve been successful in getting the used oil back. So now it really is truly a closed-loop arrangement.
