Used Cooking Oil Pickup and Recycling Services in Columbus, OH

Home » Used Cooking Oil Pickup and Recycling Services in Columbus, OH

Many commercial kitchens cannot operate without cooking oil and they need to have the proper equipment and procedures in place to handle and store their cooking oil from its arrival until it is used.  You will not only contribute to a safer working environment with proper handling of the cooking oil, but also help protect the natural environment. You can ensure that your foodservice business handles and stores your cooking oil properly by working with a professional like Mahoney Environmental.

Mahoney Environmental works with foodservice businesses in Columbus, OH to provide used cooking oil (UCO) pickup and recycling services. We can provide these services for any type of foodservice business including restaurants, bars, hotels, grocery stores, universities, shared kitchens, and ghost kitchens.  We will set up a regular UCO pickup schedule to provide timely pickups and ensure that the cooking oil is recycled.

Used Cooking Oil Collection and Recycling Services

Commercial kitchens must always transfer and store cooking oil safely.  Once cooking oil has passed its useful life, it needs to be kept in a proper storage container and picked up by a professional so it can be recycled.  Working with a professional like Mahoney Environmental ensures regular UCO pickups before your storage tank fills up.

Mahoney Environmental has a used cooking oil collection program in which businesses get regular UCO pickups. We will arrive at your business and transfer the UCO directly into our trucks from your storage tanks so it can be taken for recycling.  Our UCO collection can be tailored to accommodate the unique needs of your business.  You can keep your frying costs low and help create a safer working environment with regular UCO pickups.

Mahoney Environmental is an EPA licensed recycler and nationwide leader in UCO recycling.  All the UCO we collect from your establishment is reported accurately for your records.  We can also help businesses stay in compliance with local codes by installing proper cooking oil handling equipment and storage containers.  The UCO we collect is taken to our facility for recycling and used in the production of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), renewable diesel fuels, and other products.

We provide the following with our used cooking oil collection and recycling services:

  • Equipment to handle and store cooking oil
  • Monitoring of the UCO in your storage containers
  • Pickup of UCO
  • UCO recycling

Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation Services

Commercial kitchens must have a grease trap system to ensure that fats, oil, and grease (FOG) are not washed down the drain.  Allowing FOG to be washed down the drain can result in damage to the sewer system and pollution.  Your business may also get fined as washing FOG down the drain violates municipal codes.

Grease traps work by using a system of baffles to separate FOG from the wastewater.  The materials rise up from the water and are contained within the trap.  Grease traps need to be cleaned out regularly or the accumulated FOG will clog the traps which can lead to the following issues:

  • Kitchen flooding
  • Foul odors
  • Expensive remediation services
  • Contamination and health issues
  • Business closures

At Mahoney Environmental, we provide grease trap cleaning, maintenance, and installation services that include the following:

  • Regular maintenance: Our professionals can provide necessary maintenance to ensure that your grease traps are functional and avoid more serious problems.
  • Cleaning and repair: We can clean out FOG from the grease traps and provide repairs when needed.
  • Rodding and jetting: We can remove any clog by rodding and jetting the traps.
  • Inspection report: Each visit, we will provide you with a report that includes an inspection of the traps and any work completed.
  • History reports: We create a full documented history of your traps with our inspection reports which helps us anticipate needed maintenance as well as address issues before they cause a bigger problem.
  • Emergency 24/7 cleanup: We provide 24/7 support so we can respond to emergencies and provide cleanup and repairs to minimize downtime.
  • Compliance with municipal and state codes: There are local and state codes in place against washing FOG down the drain and violations can result in fines and business closures. Our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services will keep your business in compliance and avoid fines.

Commercial Used Cooking Oil Containers and Automated Systems

Cooking oil always needs to be transferred and stored properly before and after use.  Mishandling cooking oil increases the risk of spills which leads to burns and injuries.  Having a system that allows for the safe and efficient transfer and storage of cooking oil creates a much safer working environment.

Our professionals at Mahoney Environmental install automated cooking oil handling systems that include UCO storage tanks for commercial kitchens.  You can safely transfer cooking oil using these systems without ever touching the oil itself.

The automated cooking oil handling systems we provide include the following:

  • Direct Connection: We can connect your fryers directly to your storage tanks with our Direct Connect Recycler System. You only have to turn a lever or flip a switch to send the UCO to the storage tank.
  • Indoor System: Our indoor system consists of an indoor storage tank that runs piping to the fryers, but they do not directly connect. A portable filter machine is needed to filter the UCO.
  • Heated Outdoor Bulk Container: Our heated outdoor bulk containers are insulated for outdoor use with an anti-theft lock for protection. They also include a filter screen over the opening and a sensor for level monitoring.

We can install automated cooking oil systems that include the following:

  • Portable filter machines
  • Oil shuttles
  • Connective piping
  • UCO storage tank
