Service drives us.

VOCARS (Vegetable Oil Collection and Recycling Services) collects used cooking oils, greases, and animal fats. Since 2010, our customers have depended on us to keep their operations running smoothly. At VOCARS, we are driven to provide excellent customer service and exceed the expectations of our customers.

Fats, oils, and greases (FOGs) present an environmental hazard if not properly recycled. VOCARS recycles each and every pound of oil and grease we collect. VOCARS ensures these FOGs are repurposed into useful commodities, such as feedstock for biofuels and nutrients for animal feeds.

VOCARS provides over 20,000 annual services to restaurants, commercial kitchens, hospitals, schools, and more. It is why 3,000+ customers trust their used cooking oil removal service to VOCARS.

Scheduled Pickups

VOCARS collects used cooking oil on a regular schedule designed to fit the unique requirements of each individual customer. VOCARS utilizes a dynamic routing software that tracks the amount collected and the time between services. This allows us to adjust each customer’s pick up cycle as needed; as your business changes, we change with you.

However, in the event you need us, we’re there. VOCARS will always respond to a request for additional service as soon as we can. In fact, you can request service right here, right now.

Clean & Exchange

Oils and grease can make a mess. VOCARS works to regularly clean and swap containers. We will also make our best efforts to timely respond to a request to clean a tank, up to once annually. With good kitchen practices and VOCARS service, we will keep your facility looking clean.

Equipment Upgrades

Most of the time, a traditional outdoor container is all a restaurant needs to dispose of used cooking oil. But high volume kitchens may require upgraded equipment. Please ask us about our indoor systems and other collection options.


The VOCARS Advantage

Five SIMPLE, but SMART Reasons to give VOCARS an OPPORTUNITY to HELP bring MORE VALUE to your business.

Reason 1: Personal & Professional

VOCARS utilizes small and efficient trucks, clean storage containers, and our service personnel will maintain a personal, face to face relationship with each customer VERSUS a program of huge tractor-trailers, old & dirty grease tanks, and limited communication through a call-center operator approach…

Reason 2: Recent Success

JOIN over 2,000 customers who have switched to VOCARS within the past five years. We’ve experienced incredible success and momentum as we work honestly and tirelessly to grow.

Reason 3: Automated Routing

VOCARS utilizes an automated routing system to collect the used cooking oil before your tank is full. Our fixed scheduled routes are organized with a goal of collecting the used cooking oil when the container is 65-75% full to capacity. This routing mentality protects you against calling in for service versus most corporate-based “service determined on your past history” or when “we’re back in the area”. This is how VOCARS differentiate ourselves from competitors.  

Reason 4: BioDiesel Benefits

Help VOCARS continue to grow and generate over 1 million gallons annually for the bio-diesel industry on a local level in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, based from our Louisville, Kentucky facility. Together, we can continue to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

Reason 5: Supporting Families

It matters to VOCARS more because we are a small, independent-based business that cares about doing our best for you as it has a direct benefit for our own families… And, that’s most important to each of us: our family helping your family!


We are your neighbors, and we want to be good neighbors.
