Welcome to the Cooking Oil Recycling Program, a Community Project of Blue Ridge Biofuels
The Cooking Oil Recycling Program is a community project run by Blue Ridge Biofuels
for providing used oil recycling services to Western North Carolina. Initially funded by the Biofuels Center of North Carolina, the COR Program is the first of its kind in the region and provides recycling services previously unavailable in our local communities.
Did you know that fuel can be made from used cooking oil?
Blue Ridge Biofuels, in collaboration with The Metropolitan Sewerage District
of Buncombe County, is working to keep used cooking oils and greases out of the sewers and landfill and divert them into biodiesel production to be sold back to the local community as clean, renewable fuel.
Recycling your used cooking oil creates jobs, reduces waste, improves air quality, and creates clean energy in our local community. You can be a part of the local fuel economy simply by recycling.
Locally-made recycling bins for used cooking oil are placed throughout Buncombe County and Western North Carolina. Visit our bin location page
to find your nearest recycling bin and for information on how to get involved with the Program. It takes an active involvement to create sustainable communities.
