Rural bulk oil buying scheme

Share this article

WANT to save money on the cost of heating oil? Join the new community-based county-wide oil-buying syndicate.

Run by an established charity, Rural Community Action Nottinghamshire (RCAN), annual membership fees are £20 for householders, £30 for community buildings, and £100 for businesses.

Sign up via the RCAN website ( or call 01623 727600.

A local co-ordinator will contact you to see if you want to place an order. The minimum order is 500 litres. RCAN will negotiate the best price from a range of wholesalers – customers pay the oil supplier direct. And because a number of orders in one area are placed at together, the delivery tanker makes one journey instead of several.

Each area needs a local co-ordinator. If you’re interest, contact RCAN on the number above.
