What Cooking Oil Can Be Recycled?

All types of cooking oil can be recycled, including canola oil, corn oil, groundnut oil, olive oil, palm oil, peanut oil, sesame oil, soybean oil, vegetable oil, as well as grease and fats from foods like bacon, butter, chicken, fish, fries, lard, pork, etc.

Do not put any of the following in the used cooking oil storage container: antifreeze, chemicals, cleaning supplies, food waste, motor oil, paint, paint thinner, water, or anything else that is not grease or fryer oil.

Why Should You Recycle Cooking Oil?

If not properly disposed of, cooking oil and grease can cause blockages and costly damage to drains and kitchen appliances. Additionally, improper disposal of oil waste goes against regulatory guidelines and can potentially get you or your business into legal trouble.

Not only does having a convenient, well-managed program increase your operational efficiency and keep you in compliance with health guidelines, but it’s also environmentally friendly. Professional cooking oil recycling services ensure that the oil does not end up disposed of improperly and potentially causing harm to the surrounding areas and contaminating groundwater supplies.

What Is Recycled Cooking Oil Used For?

Because it can be recycled, used cooking oil creates other sustainable fuels – including bio-diesel and the generation of synthetic gas, which helps lower our dependence on foreign oil suppliers. Used cooking oil can also be used in a variety of products such as soaps, cosmetics, and animal feed. With our superior reputation of compliance and commitment to our environment, you can rest assured that your used cooking oil is 100% recycled.
