Safely recycling millions of Litres of used cooking oil every year
Get peace of mind knowing your used cooking oil is being collected and recycled in an environmentally responsible way.
How It Works
If it’s not properly treated, used cooking oil can clog sewer systems, pollute waterways, and contaminate landfills.
Our dispatch program makes sure oil gets picked up on a timely, reliable schedule. We have available internal storage, durable containers, locks, and keys to store your used cooking oil between pick-ups.
Most restaurants use non-hydrogenated vegetable oils for deep frying. They stay liquid and can be collected with a vacuum pump. But fat and grease drippings turn into a gel or solidify at room temperatures. We’re equipped to collect both kinds safely and efficiently, no matter the temperature or weather.
3. Clean and Convert
Once we take the oil to our facilities, we test it to make sure it's free of chemical contamination. Then we sterilize it in special tanks and run it through a high-speed centrifuge to remove food solids or sediment. The end result gets used as an ingredient in feed and in biodiesel production.
“Redux is very accommodating with their regular and emergency services. When cooking oil pick-up is needed ahead of our regular schedule date, Redux makes it happen.”

We bring the used cooking oil back to one of our facilities for processing. Once we've processed, cleaned, and tested it, we use the final product as an ingredient in animal feed and biofuel production.
We'll do the first pickup when your bin is 75% full. Then we create your service schedule so that we're collecting the oil when it’s 80% full. But you can always rest assured we'll adjust based on actual needs.
Please call us at 1-855-TO-REDUX (1-855-867-3389) when the bin is 75% full. We'll dispatch a truck and set the date based on the drop-off date and the date you contact us. We'll adjust as needed to find the best pickup frequency.
