In restaurants everywhere, cooking oil is used to prepare a wide variety of foods, from french fries to chicken wings to onion rings. But what happens to the leftover cooking oil and grease after all the meals for the night have been served? In the past, managers would instruct their team to wash the leftover grease down the drain with hot water, or they’d let it solidify before throwing it in the trash. But today, washing used cooking oil down the drain is known to have drastic negative consequences for the environment. In many cases this practice might also be illegal.

Luckily, there is a better, more environmentally friendly option for disposing of your used cooking oil. At SeQuential, we collect and recycle used cooking oil from thousands of establishments throughout the West Coast. We will explain below why you should recycle your used cooking oil with SeQuential and how in doing so your restaurant can make a positive impact on the environment.

When you recycle your used cooking oil with SeQuential, service is always courteous, convenient, and free of charge. When you enroll in our free used cooking oil recycling program, one of our knowledgeable representatives will work with you to decide on a collection schedule that fits your needs, as well as outfit your business with the right sized used cooking oil collection container. All you need to do is dispose of your used cooking oil in your assigned collection bin – we’ll handle the rest.

Good for the Environment

By recycling with SeQuential, your used cooking oil gets transformed into environmentally friendly biodiesel fuel, which is estimated to release up to 85% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional petroleum diesel. When you choose to recycle your used cooking oil, you are making a positive impact on the environment as well as supporting the local economy.
