Fryer Oil Disposal and Recycling Services
Cooking oil can be used multiple times in fryers before it loses its effectiveness. Once it reaches the end of its usability, proper storage in grease tanks is crucial, allowing for subsequent recycling. Ensuring the appropriate storage and regular pickup of UCO for fryer oil recycling is vital in mitigating the risks of oil spills, injuries, and environmental damage. Collaborating with a reputable recycling professional like Mahoney Environmental is the most reliable approach to ensuring your used cooking oil is efficiently collected for recycling purposes.

Restaurant Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation
To prevent the improper disposal of fats, oil, and grease (FOG) down the drain, it is mandatory for all commercial kitchens to have operational grease traps. Disposing of these substances down the drain can lead to severe plumbing and sewage system damage, as well as negative impacts on the natural environment. Furthermore, washing oil down the drain is a violation of city ordinances, which could result in fines for your business.
Restaurant grease traps are designed to separate FOG from water using a system of baffles. The FOG then floats to the surface and is captured within the traps. Regular cleaning of the grease traps is crucial because excessive accumulation of grease and oil can lead to clogs and various complications. If the traps become full or clogged, the following issues may arise:
- Kitchen flooding
- Foul odors
- Expensive remediation services
- Contamination and health issues
- Business closure
