Used cooking oil collection and recycling FAQs

What equipment do I need in my business for handling used cooking oil? 

Whether they are within supermarkets, fast-food chains, restaurants, and small corner stores that offer fried foods, most commercial kitchens use cooking oil. This simple yet important ingredient is used in different aspects of commercial food preparation to the extent that many commercial kitchens cannot function without fresh cooking oil on hand. 

If you run a commercial kitchen that uses cooking oil for food preparation, it is your responsibility to ensure the oil is handled correctly before and after use.  Fresh cooking oil should always be stored in suitable containers and appropriately transferred from storage to the fryers. Additionally, used fats, oils, and grease (FOG) must be disposed of adequately to protect the natural environment. It should not be poured or rinsed down the drain and must be picked up by a licensed professional for processing and recycling. 

When choosing your used cooking oil container, here are several things you need to consider: 

  • The volume and frequency of used cooking oil. Simply put, the more fat your kitchen produces, the larger your container should be.  
  • Choose a size that works best for your available space. Although we recommend indoor containers, you can still opt for outdoor containers if your indoor space cannot accommodate one, so long as they have locks. 
  • It is an almost impossible task for your kitchen staff to carry large barrels or wheels up or down the stairs. Opting for a smaller container will be the best option in this case. 
  • Designate the proper area to store your used cooking oil container. It is best to find a location that can hide potential eyesores, reduce spills, and streamline operations.  

At Atlanta Used Cooking Oil Services, we provide a suitable indoor or outdoor used oil storage system. This allows you to properly dispose of your used cooking oil and help you keep the used fats, oils, and grease under control in your commercial kitchen. 

Do I need an outdoor bin or an indoor used oil storage system? 

Every commercial kitchen has its own unique needs for storing used cooking oil. Most restaurants keep a designated outdoor bin to store their used oil. It is typically placed in the trash or recycling area to hide it from public view. While this solution seems typical and straightforward, it comes with a few disadvantages: the biggest one being a safety hazard. 

Hand-carrying hot grease outside and dumping it into a bin can cause hazards and inefficiencies to your kitchen staff. Falls, burns, and slips account for 27% of all workers’ claims, plus spilled grease can incur fines up to $10,000 per day.  

The smell of used cooking oil can be a significant turn-off that will affect your customers’ appetites and reduce your establishment’s overall curb appeal. 

Moving your used oil storage indoors solves all these issues. At Atlanta Used Cooking Oil Services, we provide an automated system that efficiently pumps oil from your deep fryer into a storage container. With the flip of a switch, you can create a safer and more efficient way of handling your used cooking oil. If you think you do not have room for an indoor tank in your kitchen, Atlanta Used Cooking Oil Services can create a customized solution that works with your needs and available space. 

What do I do if my indoor tank has overflowed? 

Oil and grease spills are an environmental threat that can gravely affect your restaurant or business. When your employee accidentally spills grease while carrying it to an outdoor bin or is not careful in power washing the grease bin itself, it can contaminate the sewer systems and impact groundwater. This results in painstaking fines as high as $10,000 per day until the issue is resolved. 

If you are dealing with overflowing grease, call us immediately. In the meantime, refrain from adding any fresher or used cooking oil to the tank, even if it means blocking off the disposal pipes until one of our technicians arrives. You can also utilize a large container to collect any dripping oil and use an absorbent material, such as kitty litter or quick-dry, to keep it from spreading. 

Make sure you block off any spill areas area to employees or customers to prevent slipping and injury. Contact Atlanta Used Cooking Oil Service to resolve any current issues from happening in the future. 

How long does it take to remove used cooking oil from my bin? 

At Atlanta Used Cooking Oil Services, we aim to minimize the collection and removal time for used cooking oil. Although it typically takes 15 minutes, this can be shorter or longer depending on your tank’s size, and the volume of oil is inside.  

Another factor that affects collection time is the efficiency of the equipment used. Most Atlanta used cooking oil recycling companies utilize equipment that is not as modern and high-grade as the ones we use. This can delay the process, especially if you have a large tank that is full of oil. Atlanta Used Cooking Oil Services is proud of our top-of-the-line pumps and expert technicians that ensure you can get your UCO and grease removed as quickly as possible.

  • The use of video surveillance is always highly recommended. Outdoor camera systems with motion sensor lights that keep an eye on your used cooking oil containers can help you track down those grease bandits.  
  • If your restaurant is near a road, we recommend installing lockable fencing to screen tanks from view.
