Oil Collectors |
We do not collect waste vegetable oil within Berkshire and council areas but here is a link to a company that does uptownoil.co.uk
The official Website for the free collection of Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) within some parts of The United Kingdom (UK) and council areas. We purely specialise in collections and nothing else and we are licensed to collect waste. Also Producers MUST sign and receive a (Controlled Waste Transfer Collection Note), we will help with this.
The packaging that is collected such as cardboard, aluminium tins and plastic containers will be recycled helping the environment and reducing rubbish sent to landfill sites. This also helps conserve raw materials protecting natural habitats for the future helping to tackle climate change.
We collect from Casinos, Garden Centres, Pubs, Night Clubs, Sports Centres, Bars, Golf Clubs, Hospitals, Schools, Theatres, Racecourses, Rugby Clubs, Football Clubs, Theme Parks, Zoos, Large Restaurants, Care Homes and Hotels to smaller catering businesses such as Cafes, Takeaways, Fisheries, Functions, Fish & Chip Shops. Minimum collections are of 20 to 80 litres depending on the area you are situated. We can collect Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) in your old containers that you buy it in or we can leave you one of our small blue barrels. We collect free of charge on a regular basis from your doorstep weekly or on a monthly basis.
The Government strongly supports the recovery of waste vegetable and rapeseed cooking oil for such purposes as it underpins its strategies in both reducing dependency upon landfill sites as a means of waste disposal and reducing the use of fossil fuels for energy generation.
Guidance issued jointly by the Food Standards Agency, Cabinet Office, Environment Agency, Defra, HM Revenue and Customs and LACORS, advises that if you produce waste vegetable and rapeseed cooking oil as part of your catering business, (for example as a chip shop or other takeaway outlet or restaurant), then you must ensure that it is stored properly, that non is allowed to spill and that it is collected by an authorised collector who will take your waste to an authorised site for recovery or disposal.
Waste vegetable oil must not be poured down the drains or sewers because of this inevitably leads to blockages and odour or vermin problems and may also pollute watercourses leading to problems for wildlife. Such action could also result in potential prosecution. Nor should waste vegetable oil be disposed of with the rest of the catering or kitchen waste because it may cause spillages leading to odour or pollution problems or waste contractors may refuse to remove it.
Collections are arranged at mutually convenient times and you are provided with all the appropriate paper work to satisfy Food Hygiene Inspections and the Environment Agency.
Please make sure upon contacting us that it is waste vegetable oil and not solid animal fat. We will collect solid animal fat but there must be a sufficient amount of waste vegetable oil at the same time to make it cost effective for us to collect.
