Green energy from used cooking fats: This is the approach we use to collect and recycle used cooking oils and fats. The focus is on "recycle," as we not only dispose of the waste fat in an ecological and professional manner, but also ensure greater sustainability with our innovative approach. 

We believe that ecological energy is an important key to this, which is why we have developed the OckoBox. It provides private households with an uncomplicated and environmentally friendly solution for disposing of used cooking fat. The boxes are available at waste disposal sites, and many consumer markets are also participating – with an increasing trend. You can find the current collection points on our map!

The professional disposal and recycling of used cooking oil is our specialty. Our customers include small and large businesses, whether it's snack bars, restaurants, trade or industry. We provide containers in different sizes according to demand, and their pick-up is uncomplicated at fixed intervals or by appointment on short notice. With our OckoBox for retail and at recycling centers, we also offer private households the opportunity to sustainably dispose of their frying oil. Additionally, we arrange the disposal of food and leftovers – packaged and unpackaged – in cooperation with our sister company BioService Nord GmbH.
