Blakemore Foodservice Recycles 27,885 Litres of Oil in Four Years

July 19, 2018


Blakemore Foodservice has been awarded a certificate in recognition of its commitment to oil recycling.

Working in partnership with customers, the business recycled 27,885 litres of oil between May 2014 and May 2018.

Oil recycling service provider Arrow, which collects used cooking oil from Blakemore Foodservice customers, presented the business with the certificate this July.

After collection, Arrow filters the waste oil and processes it into biofuel for use as vehicle fuel or for power and energy generation.

The recycling service provider is working on several combined heat and power projects to provide energy from waste cooking oil in an efficient and environmentally friendly way.

All Blakemore Foodservice customers can take advantage of the Arrow oil recycling service free of charge.

The free service includes:

  • Weekly, fortnightly or monthly collections, subject to volume

  • Waste cooking oil collection in original cans, buckets, bottles or boxes, as well as free blue barrels
  • Free rental on a Fatboxx specialised wheelie bin (larger sites only)
  • A tidy solution for the safe storage of waste oil
  • Waste transfer notes after each collection
  • Responsible waste oil storage to avoid hazardous and unsightly spillages
