Learn more about the oil and grease collection services we can provide to your business.
Free Used Oil and Grease Collection
At Oregon Oils, we offer used oil and grease collection for free— and you even get compensated for having your oil collected. All you have to do is sign up for Oregon Oil’s used cooking oil collection program. We accept many kinds of cooking oil, mainly oil from fryers, but also other types of oil like peanut, sunflower seed, and vegetable, as well as bacon grease and beef tallow. The process for our collection services consists of:
- Working with your business to choose an appropriately sized oil receptacle for your waste oil production
- Developing a pick-up schedule that is frequent enough for the amount of oil produced
- Picking up your oil and transferring it from your receptacle to our truck using a vacuum hose
- Recording the amount of oil collected and transporting it to our conversion facilities
- Compensating you for the amount of oil and grease collected with quarterly checks
Oregon Oils makes it simple to collect and dispose of your used cooking oil and grease — all in a way that’s not harmful to the environment or your business. The importance of waste oil management cannot be understated, and it all starts with choosing a partner like Oregon Oils.
Turning Used Oil Into Bio-Diesel
Oregon Oils is dedicated to offering free used oil collection services because we then recycle the used oil and turn it into biodiesel, an eco-friendly and clean-burning alternative to petroleum diesel. Biodiesel helps your business in many ways and is also better for the environment and health of workers.
Once our team collects your used oil and grease and transports it to our plant, we use a process called transesterification that treats it with alcohol to transform it into biodiesel. This service not only helps you dispose of your oil properly but also helps you earn money back because we reimburse you for the oil we collected. It also helps the environment by creating a renewable product that’s eco-conscious.
