Pourable vegetable oil is accepted for bio-diesel processing at Kent County’s SafeChem collection centers, including non-hydrogenated oils (those that remain liquid at room temperature) such as natural canola, soybean, safflower, sunflower, cottonseed, olive, and peanut oils.

Partially hydrogenated and hydrogenated oils such as shortening, bacon grease and lard (which begin to form a solid at room temperature) are NOT accepted. These types of oils must be solidified (add kitty litter or another absorbent) before being put in the trash. Don’t pour it down your drains because blockage might occur.

Restaurants interested in recycling large quantities of cooking oils should contact Evergreen Grease Service, Inc. directly.
