Cooking oil is essential in every commercial kitchen as it is needed to prepare all types of food. It is important for the staff in commercial kitchens to handle the cooking oil properly because it is a hazardous material, especially after it is used. If cooking oil is not handled properly, it can spill within the kitchen, putting your employees at risk of burns and injuries. Used cooking oil also needs to be collected and stored properly for removal or there is a risk it could get into the sewer system or natural environment. Improper storage of used cooking oil and contamination of the local sewer system could result in fines as this is against local codes. Having an effective cooking oil management system in your kitchen will help you manage the handling of your used cooking oil to ensure proper storage and avoid violations.
The most effective way to ensure that your cooking oil is handled properly and avoid violations that can lead to fines is to work with a professional that can help with cooking oil delivery, pickups, and maintenance for your oil management system.

Food service establishments need to effectively manage their fresh and used cooking oil to protect the natural environment and the safety of their employees. Mishandling of the cooking oil can cause spills which leads to slips and burns or cause the cooking oil to enter the natural environment. Using a proper cooking oil management system will contain the oil to prevent spills and ensure proper storage to protect the natural environment.
It is especially important to prevent the used cooking oil from washing down the drain and entering the sewer system.
