Eco-Friendly Grease & Used Cooking Oil Recycling

We've been a green operation for over 35 years, and we love to talk about it!


Benefits of the Grease Recycling Process

Choosing Aurora Tallow to dispose of your used grease is an environmentally sound decision.

  • 100% of the waste oil is recycled into a variety of products, such as animal feed, bio-diesel fuel, soap, degreasers and cleaning products.
  • The waste water is rich in nitrogen and potassium and is land applied to local crop fields as fertilizer.
  • Thousands of pounds of refuse are kept out of landfills.
  • Yellow grease stays out of the sewer system, which prevents sewer backups and saves cities thousands of dollars.


Benefits of Green Technology in Our Grease Recycling Plant

We utilize a state-of-the-art boiler system that converts water to steam in only five minutes. This means:

  • Less fuel is consumed
  • Fewer CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions are created
  • Precious resources are saved
