Grease & Oils

Not only can most greases, oils, and fats be successfully diverted from the landfill, but because of their high energy values, they are often some of the most valuable organic waste materials to recycle. At Northstar, we offer recycling solutions for all types of fats, oils, and greases, including the following:

  • Animal Fats
  • Vegetable Oils
  • Used Cooking Oils
  • Palm Oil
  • Fish Oil
  • And More…

When not properly collected or recycling, these grease and oil wastes can cause groundwater and other environmental contamination, clogged plumbing, and sewer blockages. To learn about the best method for recycling these materials at your facility, contact us today.
