Used Cooking Oil Recovery
The Need-to-Knows for our Used Cooking Oil Drop-off Program
Where do I go to dispose of my used cooking oil?
The used cooking oil container is located on our property at 100 W. County Rd. Y in Oshkosh, WI 54901. Come into the landfill entrance (the second driveway on the right coming from Jackson St.) and follow the signs. If you are bringing a load exclusively of cooking oil to drop off for recycling, you may use the middle lane between the scales. EACH time you visit, you will need to come inside to let the scale attendant know that you are bringing in used cooking oil.
The used cooking oil container is set along the west side of our storage building, located behind our single-stream recycling dumpsters and our yard waste pile. Our scale attendant will be sure to direct you on the spot when you get here! Click here to view the Facility map.
When can I dispose of my used cooking oil?
The used cooking oil container is available during our normal operating hours - 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Saturdays.
What do we accept?
We can accept all clean used cooking oils, which may include peanut oil, vegetable oil, canola oil, soybean oil, corn oil, olive oil, crisco etc.
What can we NOT accept?
Clean cooking oil means it cannot be mixed with food scraps, water, or any other material. Bacon grease is NOT cooking oil and is also not accepted. Any form or amount of used motor oil is also NOT accepted.
Is there a charge?
Nope! This service is offered absolutely free!
How much can I bring?
Currently there is no limit to the amount of used cooking oil you can bring. We ask that small businesses and large vendors with more than 10 gallons call ahead to check space availability.
How do I drop off my used cooking oil at your facility?
You will need to be able to pour your used cooking oil container into the top of the container (it is a little bit higher than waist height). There is a screen to rest the container on to fully drain it and catch any large items left in your cooking oil. After you have emptied your cooking oil containers, you may throw any boxes and plastic jars/jugs in our recycling dumpster, located right behind you!
What happens with the used cooking oil?
Blue Honey Bio-Fuels collects our used cooking oil when our tank is full. It is used to make alternative bio-fuels and processed locally in Wisconsin. Check them out on Facebook here.
