What size and type of containers are available?
We generally use a poly-type injection molded 125 gallon bulk used cooking oil container, but we have all types and sizes of containers ranging from 30 gallon drums to 320 gallon bulk metal box-type containers. Size and type of container depends on several factors and can be evaluated via a free consultation.
Can we dispose of HOT used cooking oil or grease in the containers?
Yes and No.
Although most of our bulk UCO containers are hot oil rated, not all containers are created equally. Many containers are rated for only warm used cooking oil, such as smaller poly-type drums. Whereas other containers, such as bulk box-type metal units, are rated for 300-degrees plus waste oil.
Are collection intervals scheduled or do we need to call for a pick-up?
We prefer to place you on a collection interval. We pride ourself on excellent service and place you on a collection frequency that ensures you always have room to dispose of used cooking oil. (However, it's ok if you prefer to call us for a pick-up when full.)
