When food service providers improperly dispose of fats, oils and grease (FOG), byproducts may end up in wastewater treatment plants and storm water systems. FOG buildup in pipes can become as hard as concrete and may completely block pipes, resulting in back-ups of raw sewage and / or flooding.
For business and commercial disposal of FOG, view a list of local grease haulers. Please note, this list is provided for reference only; Washtenaw County does not endorse any of these companies, nor does it warrant the quality of work performed.
If you are a Washtenaw County Resident with leftover cooking oil, the Home Toxics Center accepts all cooking oils (canola, peanut, olive, vegetable, etc.) for reuse into biodiesel. The Home Toxics Center cannot accept materials from businesses, only from residential use. Oils must be liquid and pourable.
