Safetykleen and Slicker Recycling announce UK carbon cutting partnership

Date: 24 April 2024 | Category: Company news

Slicker Recycling is one of the UK’s leading garage waste management firms. Each year, they collect and re-refine over 75 million litres of used oil and commercial waste.

Safetykleen has worked closely with Slicker for almost a decade but the two organisations are now embarking on a partnership that will support the circular economy by sending more waste oil to be re-refined as opposed to wasted or burnt.

The partnership will double the amount of used oil that Slicker accepts and collects from Safetykleen in the UK, and as part of the deal, Slicker Recycling will also increase the size of their operations and administration teams to help manage the extra demand.

Mark Olpin, executive chairman of Slicker Recycling said:

“Safetykleen is a business we have worked with for nearly 10 years and during that time we have built a superb relationship and mutual respect.

“We are two of the largest and fastest growing environmental and sustainability specialists, so our partnership is great news for both businesses. Not only does it formalise how we work together, but it also gives the opportunity for more used oil to be collected, re-refined and put back into the economy in a sustainable way.


“Safetykleen shares our commitment to the circular economy and vision for a greener future so it’s an agreement which is positive from every angle.”

Oliver Kunc, managing director UK and Ireland at Safetykleen added: “We’re delighted to start a new year by announcing a closer working relationship with the team at Slicker Recycling.

“They have first-class credentials in the industry across the UK and Europe and will play a key role in collecting, receiving, and re-refining double the amount of used oil from our customers. That’s good news for not only the sector, but also the wider economy, as we are two specialist businesses who know and understand the impact we can have.”
