n 1978, Bill Briggs recognized problems created by used oil. He later founded Orrco, pioneering the oil recycling industry with technical skill, resilience, teamwork, and innovation.
Scott Briggs acquired Orrco in 2016. Scott’s engineering experience and background as plant electrician and plant operator, provides him with the ability to transform Orrco for a better, cleaner environment. Still active in his 80’s, Bill continues to contribute as our Expert-Emeritus, advising Orrco and loyal customers on historic petroleum issues.
Orrco has been the Pacific Northwest’s trusted collector and recycler of used oil for over 30 years. We continually adapt to ever-changing regulations, environmental issues, and technological hurdles with innovation and a sense of pride for the work we do for our customers and environment.
