Cooking oil is an essential ingredient in a busy kitchen. It is used in an array of culinary processes – often in a high volume. The average restaurant produces 6,700 lbs. of used cooking oil per year. So what do you do with all that cooking oil once it is used? Pour it down the drain? Throw it away? Neither are safe or environmentally friendly options. How used cooking oil is collected and where it goes can not only affect a restaurant’s operations and safety but also the public’s perceptions of the restaurant’s brand as well. But don’t worry – at Oregon Oils, we assist clients throughout the Portland, Oregon area and Southern Washington with our trusted used cooking oil collections and disposal services.

Why Recycle Used Cooking Oil?

The disposal of used cooking oil should be of significant importance to a restaurant manager. Rather than asking how to properly dispose of used cooking oil, think in terms of how it can be recovered and reused. Restaurant managers should think in terms of used cooking oil collection and recycling. There are numerous advantages to doing this. Including the following:
  • Improve your restaurant’s curb appeal by eliminating foul odors caused by used cooking oil
  • Save your kitchen drains and save money by not having to call a plumber after your drain clogs
  • Avoid fines from overflowing grease traps
  • Potential rebates for your used cooking oil
  • Helping the environment by recycling an otherwise usable material into something of value (biodiesel)
  • Help reach your company’s sustainability goal and grow your perception within the community
