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.

Used Cooking Oil Collection and Recycling Services

Cooking oil has a limited lifespan and degrades after a few frying cycles. Once the oil has reached the end of its useful life, store it in a proper container for collection and recycling. By working with Mahoney Environmental, you can ensure that your used cooking oil (UCO) is collected regularly, contributing to a cleaner environment and safer working conditions in your kitchen.

Mahoney Environmental provides customized solutions to food service establishments for recycling their UCO. Our team of experts can collect UCO from your storage containers and load it onto our trucks without any help from your staff. Once collected, we transport the UCO to our facility for recycling. Our scheduled UCO collections help restaurants decrease 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 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 considerable damage to the sewage and plumbing systems and pollute the natural environment if it enters the drain. It’s vital to note that washing FOG down the drain can result in your business being fined for breaking local codes and regulations. Therefore, regularly clean and maintain your grease traps.

Grease traps separate FOG from wastewater using baffles. Regularly remove FOG to prevent clogs and other issues. 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

Mahoney Environmental provides professional grease trap cleaning and upkeep services for food service establishments. Our team of experts is committed to providing top-notch cleaning, maintenance, and repair services to ensure that grease traps function optimally. We have years of experience designing and installing grease traps for commercial kitchens. Our comprehensive Grease Trap Cleaning and Maintenance Services include:
