Home » Restaurant Used Cooking Oil Collection and Recycling Services in Louisiana

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.

At Mahoney Environmental, we offer restaurants used cooking oil collection and recycling services across Louisiana. Our services include routine collection, contributing to a safer and more efficient working environment in your kitchen. We work with various foodservice businesses such as restaurants, bars, cafés, hotels, universities, stadiums, shared kitchens, and ghost kitchens.

Mahoney Environmental provides used cooking oil collection and recycling services for restaurants in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Metairie, Lafayette, and throughout Louisiana.

Used Cooking Oil Collection and Recycling Services

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

Mahoney Environmental provides back-of-the-house solutions to help foodservice businesses with used cooking oil collection and recycling. Our professionals can load the UCO from your storage containers to our trucks without needing your staff to be present. The UCO is then taken to our facility for recycling and is used to create environmentally friendly products. Our routine UCO collection helps reduce frying costs for foodservice businesses and contributes 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 recycled UCO at our facility is used to create sustainable products such as renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

Our used cooking oil recycling services include the following:

  • UCO level monitoring
  • UCO collection
  • UCO transport and recycling
  • Cooking oil equipment installation

Restaurant Grease Trap Cleaning and Maintenance

All commercial kitchens need well-maintained grease traps. They prevent fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from entering the sewage system. Allowing FOG to enter down the drain can cause damage to the sewage and plumbing systems and pollute the natural environment. If you wash FOG down the drain, your business may be fined for violating local codes and regulations.

Grease traps use a system of baffles that effectively separates the FOG from the water. To prevent clogs and issues within the trap, remove the FOG. If the FOG builds up in the traps, your kitchen could experience the following issues:

  • Flooding in the kitchen
  • Pollution and health issues
  • Foul odors
  • Costly remediation services
  • Business closure
  • Fines

With our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services, Mahoney Environmental can help foodservice businesses keep their grease traps in working order. 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:

  • Routine 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 it with rodding and jetting techniques.
  • Detailed inspection reports: We provide your business 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 that help us foresee when maintenance is necessary or address potential problems.
  • 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 compliant with local and state regulations and avoid fines with our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services.
