Service drives us.
VOCARS (Vegetable Oil Collection and Recycling Services) collects used cooking oils, greases, and animal fats from restaurants and commercial cooking facilities. Our customers depend 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 present an environmental hazard if not properly recycled. VOCARS recycles each and every pound of oil and grease we collect. VOCARS ensures that 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 our customers. It is why 2,000 customers trust their used cooking oil removal service to VOCARS.

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 of grease 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.
Request a Pickup
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.
Most of the time, a traditional outdoor grease 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 will showcase to you our small and efficient trucks, our clean storage containers, and our service personnel will maintain a personal, face to face relationship with each customer VERSUS the current program of huge tractor-trailers, old & dirty grease tanks, and limited communication normally through a call-center operator approach…
Reason 2: Recent Success
JOIN over 1000 customers who have switched to VOCARS within the past five years. We’ve experienced incredible success and momentum as we have worked honesty 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 based on your past history” or when “were back in the area”. This is an easy way to let VOCARS show you how we differentiate ourselves.
Reason 4: BioDiesel Benefits
