Home » Restaurant Used Cooking Oil Collection and Recycling Services in North 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.

Mahoney Environmental offers used cooking oil collection and recycling services to restaurants across North Carolina. Our recurring collection services develop safer and more efficient working conditions in your kitchen. We partner with various food service businesses, including restaurants, bars, cafés, hotels, universities, stadiums, shared kitchens, and ghost kitchens.

Used Cooking Oil Collection and Recycling Services

Cooking oil can only be used for multiple frying cycles before the quality starts to deteriorate. When the cooking oil goes past its lifecycle, store it in a proper container to be picked up and disposed of. Partner with Mahoney Environmental for routine collection of your used cooking oil (UCO) to help protect the environment and make safer working conditions in your kitchen.

Mahoney Environmental offers tailored solutions to help food service establishments by disposing and recycling used cooking oil. Our team of professionals can collect the UCO from your storage containers and load it onto our trucks without requiring your staff’s presence. We then take the UCO to our facility for recycling, then used to create sustainable products. Our regular UCO pickups help food service businesses reduce frying expenses and promote safer working conditions.

Mahoney Environmental is an EPA-licensed UCO recycler and can also design and install cooking oil handling equipment for commercial kitchens. We provide detailed reports of the UCO we collect from your business. The recycled UCO at our facility is then transformed into 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 to have well-maintained grease traps. They are essential in preventing fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from entering the sewage system. If FOG enters the drain, it can cause considerable damage to the sewage and plumbing systems and pollute the natural environment. It’s crucial to know that washing FOG down the drain can result in your business being fined for breaking local codes and regulations. Therefore, regularly clean and well-maintain your grease traps.

Grease traps use a series of baffles that efficiently isolate FOG from the wastewater. Remove the accumulated FOG regularly to prevent clogs and other issues within the trap. Failure to do so could lead to the following problems:

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

Mahoney Environmental offers grease trap cleaning and maintenance services to foodservice businesses. Our team of experts offers quality cleaning, upkeep, and repair services to maintain your grease traps in working order. We are also skilled in designing and installing grease traps for commercial kitchens. Our Grease Trap Cleaning and Maintenance Services include:
