Used Cooking Oil Collection and Recycling Services

Businesses that are part of our used cooking oil collection program will get regular UCO pickups from our professionals.

Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation Services

All commercial kitchens need to have grease traps so that fats, oil, and grease (FOG) are prevented from being washed down the drain and into the sewer system.  These materials can solidify and cause damage within the sewer system that leads to pollution of the natural environment.  You can also get fined for violating local codes by washing FOG down the drain.

Grease traps help keep FOG out of the sewer system by separating them from the wastewater using a system of baffles.  The FOG then rises from the water and gets caught within the traps. The traps need to be cleaned regularly to remove the FOG buildup or the following problems may occur:

  • Flooding in the kitchen
  • Bad odors
  • Expensive remediation services
  • Contamination and health issues
  • Business closure

The following is included with the grease trap installation, maintenance, and cleaning we provide:

  • Regular maintenance: We can provide regularly scheduled maintenance to take care of repairs and other work needed for the traps.
  • Cleaning and repairs: We can provide regular cleaning to remove built up FOG from the traps as well as any repairs needed.
  • Rodding and jetting: We can remove any clogs from your grease traps by rodding or jetting the traps.
  • Inspection report: On each visit, we create a detailed inspection report including all the work that was completed.
  • History reports: We keep a documented history of your grease traps which helps us know when your traps will need maintenance to avoid bigger problems.
  • Emergency 24/7 cleanup: We can provide emergency cleanup and repairs 24 hours a day.
  • Compliance with municipal and state regulations: Washing FOG down the drain violates municipal and state regulations which can get your business fined. Our grease trap cleaning and maintenance services help keep your business in compliance to avoid fines.

Commercial Used Cooking Oil Containers and Automated Systems

Cooking oil always needs to be handled and stored properly from when it is delivered until it is stored after use.  Mishandling cooking oil increases the risk of spills which wastes oil and causes burns and other injuries.  Commercial kitchens need cooking oil handling equipment and storage containers in place.

At Mahoney Environmental, we can design and install automated cooking oil handling systems that allow you to safely transfer and store cooking oil.  Our automated systems make transferring the cooking oil easy with no need for employees to touch the oil.

The cooking oil handling systems we provide include the following:

  • Direct Connection: We can connect your fryers directly to your storage container with our Direct Connect Recycler System. With this system, you can transfer UCO by turning a lever or flipping a switch.
  • Indoor System: Our indoor solution includes an interior storage container with piping that connects to your fryers. A portable filter machine can be used for oil filtration.
  • Heated Outdoor Bulk Container: We can provide outdoor bulk containers that are insulated and feature a level sensor and filter screen over the opening. These tanks also have an anti-theft lock for protection.

You will get the following with our automated cooking oil systems:

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