Locate Recycling Centers

We are working with local municipalities and counties to help reduce SSO’s by giving people a place to take used cooking oil for recycling.

We collect and recycle residential cooking oil and we have provided oil collection containers at the following sites.

Put the spent oil in its original container or in an old milk jug and bring it to the facility.
The recycling center is open Monday –Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information call the recycling center at (706) 613-3512 or www.acc-recycle.org

We also work with The City of Atlanta’s Watershed Dept by recycling the oil they collect from residents.

A 1998 study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that around 9 pounds of used cooking oil are generated per person per year. Given a U.S. population of 300 million, this equates to approximately 2.7 billion pounds of used cooking oil per year. With so much used cooking oil generated each year, a vibrant market has developed to collect and recycle it. We use renewable energy to create biodiesel at our plant in Monroe, GA. Biodiesel is America’s first advanced biofuel. It is a renewable clean burning diesel replacement, registered with the U.S. Environmental Production Agency (EPA) and is legal for use at any blend level on both highway and nonroad diesel vehicles. Biodiesel is non-toxic and 100% biodegradable. Biodiesel is safer to store, handle, and clean up fuel spills. Biodiesel degrades about four times faster than petroleum diesel and reduces US dependence on imported diesel.
