Has your jurisdiction considered a kitchen grease collection program to support your SB 1383 compliance goals?

Renderers collect used restaurant cooking oils to clean and recycle them into ingredients for animal feed, and to be used in biodiesel and renewable diesel for cars, trucks, airplanes, and other equipment. Conversion of Fats Oils and Greases to animal feed is an approved diversion activity under SB 1383

Both commercial and residential kitchen grease collection and recycling programs can be established as a tool for SB 1383 compliance. Find a service provider near you by using our organics to animal feed mapping feature or contact to learn more.
