Food Service Industry and Recycling Used Cooking Oil

When businesses disregard sewer regulations and improperly dispose of fat, oil and grease to drain, sewer lines can become clogged causing sewage to backup into homes, businesses or the environment.

Proper Disposal Of Used Cooking Oil

Never discharge cooking oil down the drain. It will cause blockages and is a violation of Chapter 14.08 of the Municipal Code.

Small amounts of fats, oil and grease may be placed in a sealed container for disposal to the trash.

Larger amounts of deep fryer oil can be recycled. Recyclers servicing the Longmont area will use the oil to make various products like biodiesal or animal feed.

  • Because the oil is reused, please ensure that the collection container is closed so that debris and rain do not fall into it.
  • Keep the area around the collection container clean to avoid vermin. Clean up all spills immediately.
  • Protect the storm sewers near any outside storage area. It is a violation of Chapter 14.26 of the Municipal Code to allow trash, spills, oil, etc. to enter or threaten any storm sewer inlet or waterbody.
