One of the most significant and major waste materials in America is used vegetable oil and cooking grease. For years used vegetable oil from restaurants was dumped into sewer systems, lakes and rivers, as the cost to dispose properly was to great for most. This is a huge and unnecessary environmental problem that still effects us today and happens all across South Florida and the United States. Used cooking oil has endless possibilities for renewal, including bio-fuel. Today you can not only safely dispose of your used cooking oil, but get paid for it as well.
We service accounts including major chains, mom and pop operations, and restaurants of any size. We are growing rapidly to fulfill the needs of our customers. We begin our process by providing each restaurant with a properly-sized, leak-free container from 55 gallon to 350 gallon container depending on the volume of the restaurant. During our regularly-scheduled collection service visits, we safely empty the containers in a clean and efficient manner. We are in full compliance with current state, federal and local laws and regulations. The empty containers are thoroughly inspected for damage, and replaced with a new container, if necessary.
What kind of fresh oil do you supply?
We currently carry two types of vegetable oil. Our primary oil is Refined (clear) soybean oil. This is a 0 trans fat cooking oil with a very clean, neutral taste. It has a high smoke point and is very stable. We also carry a more durable blend of hydrogenated (creamy) vegetable oil. This is also a very low trans fat oil. Hydrogenated oil tends to be a bit more durable, but this comes with the trade off of a bit higher price. We have the ability to source specialty oils such as peanut oil and canola oil. Please call us for more information on these products.
How much do you charge for your fresh oil?
Oil pricing depends on a number of factors. The two most important factors are market conditions, the volume of oil you purchase. For more information on pricing, please call or email Nick Cross at (239)980-5966.
Will you pay me for my waste cooking oil?
Yes! We offer market-based compensation for your waste cooking oil. There are several factors that go into the rate such as your grease output per week, the size of your storage containers, your contract status, and the free market. We will always be clear and transparent with you and we will ALWAYS pay you for the amount that is collected.
Do I have to sign a contract?
For general waste oil collection, we do not require a contract, but we will need you to sign a document that says it’s OK for us to carry away your waste cooking oil. In order to use our cooking oil management system, we do ask for a commitment from you. Installing this unique system involves a substantial investment on our part. In order to feel comfortable making that investment in your restaurant, we need agree on general terms before installing the equipment.
How often do you pickup?
This depends on how much waste your restaurant generates and how large a tank we select for your location. Most restaurants are serviced monthly, but some larger restaurants require more frequent service. Special events (Superbowl, Spring Break, etc.) often require that we add additional collection routes. Rest assured that we will work with you to make sure your waste oil is never a problem for you.
Why should I use your grease collection system?
