Waste Cooking Oil – Recycle in SC

recycle-manWaste cooking oil – we all use it. Whether you fry at home or you enjoy grabbing that tasty chicken sandwich while you are out and about, you helped create waste cooking oil. Why is it important to recycle waste cooking oil? Because it clogs water lines and contaminates natural waterways. The City of Columbia alone spends thousands of dollars dealing with waste cooking oil that has been poured down the drain.

This is the era of responsibility: You create it so recycle it! And Midlands Biofuels is here to help you with that task.

Midlands Biofuels has been recycling waste cooking oil for over 7 years now. We recycle the waste grease into a sustainable, alternative biofuel that you can run in your diesel car or truck. The biodiesel produced from you eating that tasty chicken sandwich could run the state’s entire fleet of school bus and public transportation, but we need your help. We need you to recycle that waste cooking oil and we need you to ask your favorite restaurants to recycle their waste cooking oil with us so we can see this goal materialize.

SC County Recycling Centers that will recycle your waste cooking oil with Midlands Biofuels:

Allendale, Clarendon, Darlington, Dillon, Dorchester, Greenville, Greenwood, Hampton, Kershaw, Laurens, Lexington, Orangeburg, Richland and coming soon, Chesterfield!
