Want to be a part of a local, sustainable solution?
Are you a positive, can-do, solutions-oriented person who can provide top-notch customer service as you collect veggie oil in a truck with a giant vacuum pump? If you love hands-on work that helps the planet, then this is the job for you.

You will also help to make this product into something useful by assisting our Saanich plant manager as needed. This is a unique one of a kind job that’s worthwhile and challenging. It’s truly a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it!
