Recycle Your Cooking Oil

One person’s waste is another person’s biofuel.

Cooking oil and grease is hard on municipal water sanitation systems and can increase the energy required to treat waste water. It’s also hard on your garbage disposal and can build up and cause major problems in your plumbing system. Dispose of used oil responsibly through Montgomery County’s cooking and vegetable oil recycling program, where it is reused in animal feed and biofuels. See the Resources tab below.

If you do recycle your used cooking oil, you’ll eliminate one source of expensive plumbing repairs.

Have a question? Send it to us and we’ll try to find an answer and post it here.

    Dear Manager,

    I am looking forward to purchase processed used cooking oil with out the blended diesel. We are willing to purchase 300 to 400 matric tons or less in monthly basis.

    The first trail order should be 25 Tons.

    I will be waiting for your response.

    Hi Dani,
    Unfortunately, we do not deal with used cooking oil. For questions regarding such, I would recommend contacting MC311 by dialing 311 from any phone in the County.

    Cooking oil is one of the hardest thing to dispose of. It is very unpleasant to drop it in your plumbs. I am very surprised that cooking oil could be reused in animal feed and bio fuels. Greetings!

    When I clicked on the link for more information on cooking oil collection sites it directed me to the Shady Grove transfer station. One and only one place to bring used cooking oil in the entire county? Seriously? Here’s a tip. Set up collection barrels at key locations throughout the county. I doubt many people are going to drive 20 miles to drop off a couple small containers of cooking oil.
