Used Cooking Oil

Two years ago we wrote an article on What to do with your used cooking oil and since we are in the high cooking (and probably frying) season, we would like to invite you to revisit that post and make sure you will be disposing of your cooking oil the best way.

Also, Earth911 posted some interesting information about cooking oil that is worth reading.

One bit of sad news about our article is that local recycler Elias Victor is not making biodiesel from used cooking oil any longer. We contacted him on November 27. 2013 and he said he stopped working on that simply for lack of time. He did not know of any other local recyclers and we could not find any others either. If you know of any in Brevard County, please contact us.

We left a message for Green Oil Recyclers at the number listed in the county's Recyclopedia (321-403-1771). Let's hope they are still operating in the area and are an alternative for whomever would like to recycle their used oil.

These services are available in different parts of the world. For example, Wastevegoil, in the UK, offers free collection of any amounts of waste vegetable oil of 20 liters or more and the recycled oil is converted into biodiesel. It would be nice to have something like that available in Brevard.



Recycle Brevard!
