Please send us your used cooking oil including vegetable oil, canola oil, olive oil, corn oil and peanut oil. Please be sure to filter your oil of any food scraps. 


Please choose the appropriate size pail or drum you'd like to purchase. When you receive your container, fill it with clean used vegetable oil. Once full, place your pail back in the original shipping container and bring your box to any UPS location to ship your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid UPS shipping label, which is shipped in your box. When we receive your box, we'll consolidate the oil for pickup by our recycling partner American By-Products Recyclers, who will give the oil a second life as biodiesel or mechanical lubricant.


Collected oil will be consolidated, purified, and used to create biofuels and mechanical lubricant.
