Dealing with your used cooking oil can be a major issue. You produce a lot of this waste, and it can’t simply be washed down the drain because it can clog up the entire system. Throwing it in the trash can also create a fire hazard unless you let it completely cool. You can freeze it or put it in an airtight container before throwing it in the trash, but that means you’ll have old cooking oil taking up space in your freezer.
Instead, you can take the time to reuse and recycle your old cooking oil. There are a few reasons why this is the best option.
Reusing Cooking Oil
It can be economical to reuse cooking oil to an extent. You obviously don’t want reuse the same batch of oil too much because it will get dirty. To reuse oil, pour it into an airtight jar and store it at room temperature. Before you put it back into your fryer, strain it through a coffee filter to remove as much waste from it as possible. Always make sure you’re using the oil to cook the same foods so the tastes don’t mix. Once you’ve reused the oil a few times, it’s probably time to recycle it.
Recycling Cooking Oil
Recycling cooking oil can be easier than reusing it since there’s no need to filter the oil or make sure you’re always using the same oil to cook the same foods. Cooking oil recycling only involves storing the oil until it can be picked up for recycling. There are a number of containers you can use for this, but if you work with Grand Natural, we will actually give you bins to use.
Our recycling program makes it as easy as possible for you. In addition to giving you the bins, we will set up regular pickup dates to collect the grease. We make sure we empty your recycling bins before they get too full, so you never have to worry about overflow. You can even pull up our app and request grease collection services with a single touch of a button.
Our goal is to keep the process as easy as possible for you so recycling your cooking oil never becomes a chore. If you’d like to know more about what we offer, contact Grand Natural today or visit us at 135 South Lemon Street in Orange, California.
