How Should Businesses Dispose of Used Cooking Oil?

State Laws in SC, NC, GA & TN

In South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee, it’s illegal for businesses to throw away used cooking oil with regular trash. That’s right. It’s actually illegal to pour used cooking oil down drains, onto the ground, or to throw it out with regular garbage. The good news is, there’s a responsible way to dispose of it—and it’s good for the environment!
