Protect the Environment

Whether you’re in the hospitality or event industry, or manage a commercial kitchen, your business can benefit from SeQuential’s oil collection service. By participating in our free cooking oil recycling program, you are taking steps to protect the environment by ensuring your oil is properly disposed. In doing so, you avoid the following consequences:

  • Unsanitary bacteria infiltrating into local sewer, water and waste management facilities, which are not equipped to handle fats, oils and greases (FOG)
  • Fire hazards associated with illegally dumping used cooking oil, threatening your building, employees, customers and everything around you
  • FOG seeping into ecosystems and soils, potentially affecting food supplies and the health of area wildlife

Avoid Costly Repairs

By taking advantage of our used cooking oil recycling services, you could also be saving yourself from the expensive damage that could result from improper disposal. Aside from facing hefty fines for failing to comply with local regulations, you may have to make the following repairs:

  • Reversing sewer blockage from solidified FOG within your pipes
  • Cleaning up bacteria from overflows that affect water lines, your building’s integrity and structures surrounding your business
  • Eliminating insects and other vermin who are attracted to your kitchen from the rancid odors of blocked or overflowing plumbing components
  • Mitigating potential workers’ compensation lawsuits of employees who fall ill from the conditions associated with improper used cooking oil disposal

Preserve Your Reputation

In addition to saving you money in the long run, SeQuential’s used cooking oil recycling service can prevent your company from suffering through bad public relations. If you are found in noncompliance or an unfortunate oil spill occurs on your watch, it can be tough to repair the damage to your reputation.
