Home » Restaurant Grease Pick Up and Disposal Services in South Carolina

Many foodservice businesses depend on the use of cooking oil for their operations.  The challenge that foodservice businesses must address is how to safely handle and store the cooking oil before and after use so it can be collected for recycling.  The best way for foodservice businesses to ensure appropriate handling and storage of cooking oil is by working with a professional like Mahoney Environmental.

Fryer Oil Disposal and Recycling Services

Cooking oil is good for several cycles in the fryers before its quality diminishes.  Once the cooking oil has passed its useful life, it needs to be stored in the proper storage container so it can be collected and recycled.  Working with professionals like Mahoney Environmental to regularly collect your used cooking oil helps protect the natural environment and creates safer working conditions in your kitchen.

Mahoney Environmental provides tailored solutions to help foodservice businesses with used cooking oil disposal and recycling.  Our professionals can load the UCO from your storage containers to our trucks with no need for any of your staff to be present.  The UCO is then taken to our facility for recycling and is used to produce environmentally friendly products.  Our regular UCO pickups help reduce frying expenses for foodservice businesses and contribute to safer working conditions.

Mahoney Environmental is an EPA-licensed UCO recycler and we can also design and install cooking oil handling equipment for commercial kitchens.  We provide accurate reports of the UCO we collect from your business.  The UCO that is recycled at our facility is used to produce sustainable products such as renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

Our fryer oil recycling services include the following:

  • UCO level monitoring
  • Used fryer oil pickup
  • UCO transport and recycling
  • Cooking oil equipment installation

Restaurant Grease Trap Cleaning and Maintenance

It is important for all commercial kitchens to have grease traps and ensure that they are well maintained to protect the sewage system from fats, oil, and grease (FOG).  Allowing FOG to be washed down the drain can cause damage to the sewage and plumbing systems and contaminate the natural environment.  Your business may also be fined for violating local codes and regulations if you wash FOG down the drain.

Grease traps use a system of baffles that effectively remove the FOG from the water.  The FOG is collected within the trap and must be cleaned out regularly to prevent clogs and other issues.  If the FOG is not cleaned from the traps often enough, your kitchen could experience the following issues:

  • Flooding in the kitchen
  • Contamination and health issues
  • Foul odors
  • Expensive remediation services
  • Business closure
  • Fines

Mahoney Environmental can help foodservice businesses keep their grease traps in working order with our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services.  You can expect quality cleaning, maintenance, and repairs from our professionals, and we can also help design and install grease traps for commercial kitchens.  We provide the following as part of our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services:

  • Regular maintenance: We can provide routine maintenance to keep your grease traps in working order and inspect them for potential problems.
  • Cleaning and repair: We clean accumulated FOG from the traps and provide needed repairs.
  • Rodding and jetting: If there is a clog in the traps, we can remove the clog with rodding and jetting techniques.
  • Detailed inspection reports: We provide you with a detailed report of our inspections and all work done on the traps on every visit.
  • Comprehensive history records: We create a complete documented history of your grease traps with our inspection reports which helps us anticipate when maintenance is needed, or a potential problem must be addressed.
  • 24/7 emergency cleaning: If a problem with your grease traps creates a mess in your kitchen, we can provide emergency cleaning 24 hours a day to minimize the interruption to your business.
  • Compliance with local and state regulations: You can keep your business in compliance with local and state regulations and avoid fines with our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services.
