Wren Oil receives Statewide Acknowledgement for Recycling

October 19, 2001 in News

Bunbury based recycling company, Wren Oil has taken out a second environmental award for this year, after winning the State Recycling Awards in the small business category, last week.

Processing over 12 million litres of waste oil per year from all over the state, or around 40% of the waste stream, the small business has overcome tough competition from large multi-national organisations to achieve this prestigious title.

Established in 1981, Wren Oil was processing waste oil before recycling was even a well known jargon.

Fred Wren, owner of Wren Oil stated that after investing millions of dollars on processing equipment, his company was the only one in Western Australia to boast a re-refining process, which permitted waste oil to be returned to the market place as fuel, chainsaw oil, hydraulic oil and other automotive products.

“It is Wren Oil’s aim to increase our capacity to over 20 million litres per annum and we are seeking government and industry assistance to reach this target, “Mr Wren said.

“We encourage any business that handles waste oil to utilize our services and therefore play a role in maintaining and conserving our environment and valuable resources.”

“It is a known fact that one litre of oil can contaminate over one million litres of drinking water and as such it is essential that companies dealing with waste oil, process it correctly.”

Wren Oil employs five trucks throughout the state and offers a free waste oil collection service. The company also won the small business category for the South West 3R Awards held in Bunbury in June 2000.
