How can you maintain your container and collection area?

While used cooking oil itself is not considered hazardous, it’s crucial to prevent spills and leaks from entering the stormwater system to protect the environment. Watch our engaging video showcasing practical tips and techniques for the collection and recycling of used cooking oil. See firsthand how you can make a positive impact and ensure the safe handling of your kitchen’s used oil.

  • Never put any other waste material in your bin.

    Mahoney (formerly SeQuential) containers are for used cooking oil recycling only.

  • Periodically scrape the grate at the top of your container.

    Food particles can cause clogging or make your container appear full. Toss the scraped food particles in the compost or dumpster.

  • Be careful when pouring oil into the container.

    If you do experience a spill, you can clean it up using absorbent pads, or by sprinkling with sand or kitty litter before sweeping into the garbage.

  • Only use Mahoney (formerly SeQuential) provided locks.

    Locking your container is a great way to prevent theft and keep garbage out of your bin. Make sure to use the lock we give you, as using a different lock could prevent us from accessing your oil.
