Used Cooking Oil Collection and Recycling Services

Cooking oil can only be used for multiple frying cycles before its quality starts to degrade. Once the cooking oil goes past its lifecycle, store it in a proper container to be collected and recycled. Partner with Mahoney Environmental to regularly collect your used cooking oil (UCO) to help protect the environment and create safer working conditions in your kitchen.

Mahoney Environmental offers customized solutions to food service establishments for recycling used cooking oil (UCO). Our team of professionals can collect the UCO from your storage containers and load it onto our trucks without requiring your staff’s assistance. Once collected, we transport the UCO to our facility for recycling. Our scheduled UCO collections help restaurants reduce their frying expenses and provide a safer working environment.

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 well-maintained grease traps to prevent fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from entering the sewage system. FOG can cause significant damage to the sewage and plumbing systems and contaminate the natural environment if it enters the drain. It’s crucial to note that washing FOG down the drain can result in your business being fined for breaking local codes and regulations. Therefore, it’s important to regularly clean and maintain your grease traps.

Grease traps use a series of baffles that efficiently separate 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
  • Contamination and health issues
  • Foul odors
  • Expensive repair services
  • Business closure
  • Fines
