About OARA

Who We Are

The Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association has been the voice of the auto recycling industry in Ontario since 1992. OARA has kept Auto Recyclers informed and involved with input and information into current industry trends and government legislative initiatives that affect auto recyclers. In addition, as the membership grows, numerous membership benefits are now available to enhance each member’s business opportunities, productivity and profitability.

What We Do

Engine in a warehouseSince its inception, OARA has been a working partner with our members to improve the practices within the industry and to collectively promote the benefits of responsible auto recycling with the general public, provincial and local governments and key stakeholders.

We partner with other automotive associations and government working groups to address best practices and future solutions regarding waste oil, CFCs, mercury switches, scrap tires and wrecked or salvaged vehicle issues.

As the voice of the industry, we liaise with government officials and leaders in the insurance and auto repair industries to bring about positive changes that will result in both economic and environmental benefits.

We also provide a valuable resource to the automotive industry as they continue in their efforts to increase the recyclable content and reduce the environmental impact of the vehicles they build.
