Cooking and Frying Oil

  Cooking and Frying Oil

Why recycle fryer and cooking oil? 
Used cooking oil or waste vegetable oil is a valuable commodity that may be recycled. Don't pour cooking oil or grease down the drain, it just clogs the pipes and makes the sewage treatment plant unhappy. Used cooking oil may be re-refined to make lubricants, new products and bio-diesel. Bio-diesel made from cooking oil can actually power a vehicle and in the process create much less emissions than regular diesel or gasoline - it has been reported that the exhaust from these vehicle smells like french fries!

Cooking and fryer oil may be taken to the  San Joaquin Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility, the  Lovelace Transfer Station, or  North County Recycling Center for recycling. Limit 5 gallons per customer and please deliver in sealed containers. If you have larger quantities, please call 209-468-3066 to make arrangements.

There is NO COST for San Joaquin County residents to recycle or properly dispose of these materials at  San Joaquin County's Household Hazardous Waste Facility.

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THESE ITEMS IN THE GARBAGE!
