There are many commercial kitchens that use a high volume of cooking oil on a daily basis. Restaurants that rely on cooking oil also need to make sure they are properly handling and storing their cooking oil before and after use. Used cooking oil cannot be disposed of, it must be stored and picked up for recycling. Working with a professional oil recycler will help ensure timely pickups of the stored used cooking oil.
Mahoney Environmental provides restaurant grease pickup and recycling services for foodservice businesses in Los Angeles, CA. We are licensed to provide used cooking oil (UCO) pickup services for restaurants and bars as well as hotels, grocery stores, universities, shared kitchens, ghost kitchens, and more. You can ensure regular UCO pickups by working with our professionals.
Fryer Oil Disposal and Recycling Services
Cooking oil can be used for several frying sessions until it has passed its useful life. After the cooking oil is used, it needs to be transferred to a proper grease storage tank until it is picked up for recycling. Ensuring proper UCO storage and regular pickups creates a safer working environment by preventing spills and injuries and helps protect the natural environment. Setting up regular UCO pickups with Mahoney Environmental will ensure that the UCO is recycled.

Restaurant Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation
Commercial kitchens that use cooking oil must have working grease traps to keep fats, oil, and grease (FOG) from being washed into the sewer system. Allowing FOG to be washed down the drain can cause damage to the sewer system and pollute the natural environment. Washing FOG down the drain may also violate city ordinances which can lead to fines for your business.
Restaurant grease traps use a system of baffles to separate FOG from the wastewater and contain them within the trap. The built-up FOG needs to be cleaned out from the trap regularly before it becomes enough to clog the trap.
Clogged grease traps can cause the following problems:
- Flooding in the kitchen
- Foul odors
- Expensive remediation services
- Contamination and health issues
- Business closure
Mahoney Environmental can help ensure that your grease traps are clean and functional with our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services. We can install grease traps for kitchens that do not have them and provide cleaning, maintenance, and repairs as needed.
Our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services include the following:
- Regular maintenance: We can provide regular maintenance services to keep your grease traps functional.
- Cleaning and repair: Our professionals will provide regular cleaning to remove built up FOG and we can provide repairs when needed.

- Compliance with regulations: Keeping your grease traps clean and in working order will ensure compliance with local and state regulations.
Restaurant Grease Disposal Containers
Cooking oil must be stored and handled properly in commercial kitchens before and after use. It is important for kitchens to have the right equipment in place to ensure the proper handling, transfer, and storage for cooking oil. Commercial kitchens are safer with a cooking oil handling system in place because this equipment helps prevent spills, burns, and injuries.
Mahoney Environmental provides and installs cooking oil handling equipment including portable filter machines and grease disposal containers. We provide the following automated cooking oil handling systems:
- Direct Connection: Our Direct Connection Recycler System consists of storage tanks connected directly to the fryers that allow you to transfer the UCO into storage by turning a lever or flipping a switch.
- Indoor system: With our indoor system, an indoor storage tank runs pipelines to the fryers but they do not connect directly. The UCO needs to be transferred with a portable filter machine.
- Heated Outdoor Bulk Container: We install our heated bulk containers outside for UCO storage. These tanks are insulated and feature filter screens over the opening, level sensors, and anti-theft locks.
The commercial grease storage containers we provide include the following:
- ClearView 200
- Metro SecureTrack® (MST)
- SecureTrack® (ST)
- MEC-400 Gallon Inside Storage Tank
- MEC-600 Gallon Outside Storage Tank
