You can recycle your used cooking and support GTECH at the same time

In October 2014, ReFuel Pgh stopped its oil collection services. A drop-off bin for used cooking oil collection is still in operation at the Whole Foods in East Liberty.  GTECH can still connect businesses, churches and restaurants to oil recycling and pick up services through Greenlight Biofuels.

Kitchens located throughout Allegheny county can continue to support GTECH’s work through oil recycling rebates while getting the clean, green and reliable service of Greenlight Biofuels with our ‘have your waste give back’ partnership.

When you partner with GTECH Strategies and Greenlight Biofuel, not only does 100%  of the oil collected go to biodiesel production, but you can elect to support GTECH community-based projects by donating a percentage of your rebate to GTECH.

It’s simple to have your waste give back. Simply contact Katherine to get started.




Used cooking oil, like the oil used here to make french fries, can be collected and recycled into biodiesel. AND, with the 'Have Your Waste Give Back' partnership you can choose to send a portion of your oil rebate to support the work of GTECH Strategies
