Supply. Collect. Convert.
Trust our local used cooking oil collection teams to offer you a reliable and efficient service that ensures your food business is fully compliant with environmental legislation.
Every drop of used cooking oil we collect is converted into renewable energy.
We approach everything we do with the ambition of achieving 100% resource recovery. We apply this way of thinking to every step of our oil cycle – from how we source and package our fresh cooking oil, how we collect your used cooking oil, to how we convert both used cooking oil and packaging into renewable resources.
We take the time to try and test everything with all our suppliers to ensure we provide you with premium cooking oils. Where possible, we source locally. We use our local knowledge and skills to increase the efficiency, value and sustainability of all our rounds. With the completion of our purpose built Liverpool biodiesel processing plant, we are now able to convert the used cooking oil we collect into 100% biodiesel.
Our local teams of drivers across the country are on hand to collect your used cooking oil regularly and reliably. We are fully insured and certified, giving you the peace of mind knowing we handle your used cooking oil safely and in compliance with all environmental regulations. We also make it our business to guarantee you are paid for every litre we collect.
Olleco can deliver quality cooking oil right to your door. We have a number of local customer service teams on hand to phone you a couple of days before your order. Our drivers are located throughout the UK, ensuring there is always a local Olleco driver near you no matter where your food service business is based. We also collect at the same time as we deliver meaning one visit for you and one trip for us.
We convert used cooking oil into 100% biodiesel and a range of other renewable fuels at our purpose built biodiesel plant in Liverpool. Not only does our biodiesel give more than a 90% carbon saving compared to using regular fossil diesel, but also the way in which we do everything sets industry standards for health and safety practices.
We help you recover the maximum value from your food & waste food. Our collection service is simple, carbon efficient, time and cost effective to your business and to the environment.

With the mounting pressure to reduce the world’s carbon footprint, a landfill tax escalator has been introduced, which could end up costing you in excess of £100 per tonne.
We can provide you with a reliable weekly collection service. We take care to ensure your bins are kept clean and odour free by replacing the bin liner at every collection. You could also have access to your own online management tool where you can generate your collection history and carbon savings reports.
Our service offers you:
The renewable resources we convert food waste into include; electricity, heat and transport fuels as well as compost which is an environmentally friendly alternative to chemical fertilisers.
Anaerobic Digestion is the main method of conversion we use to turn food waste materials in to renewable resources. Anaerobic Digestion is a natural decomposition process done under oxygen free conditions using bacteria and microscopic bugs to break down the food and organic materials.
We guarantee everything we collect will be recycled in some way, nothing goes to landfill. We have formed relationships with a number of local, licensed Anaerobic Digestion plants throughout the UK to minimise how far your collected materials have to travel. In the process of this, we have also established the key link between our customers who need food waste collected and Anaerobic Digestion plants who need this to produce biogas.
Our food waste collection trucks have also been specially designed to not only pick up our bins in the safest way possible but they are more fuel efficient than standard refuse collection vehicles.
We already provide our food waste collection service to various foodservice businesses such as:
All commercial waste producers have a responsibility to ensure all their waste is stored, collected and disposed of in line with the duty of care regulations, by using Olleco we save you from having to worry about these as we are fully compliant.
The way we look at waste in the modern world is changing. The term waste implies that something no longer has any use but we centre our entire business on recovering value and energy from this precious resource.
We aim to provide 100% resource recovery for our customers

Plus we also have the facilities and the people to be able to follow through and extract that value at every stage of our virtuous cycle.
When we approach resource recovery, at the forefront of our mind is how we can extract the maximum practical benefits from materials.

Our purpose built Liverpool biodiesel plant is the UK’s largest processing site solely dedicated to producing biodiesel from used cooking oil. It features cutting edge technology which enables us to produce EN14214 EU specification biodiesel.
Our biodiesel gives more than a 90% green-house carbon savings compared to regular fossil diesel.
In addition to producing biodiesel which can be used as a fuel for both diesel cars and diesel generators we also produce bioliquid fuels which can be used to run CHP plants. Working with our technology partners we can supply generators which have been modified to run on the fuel we supply.
Under European agreements large fuel companies must use a small percentage of renewable fuels in the fuel they supply. This means we all get to use a small amount of renewable fuel every time we fill up our cars. Olleco is proud of the part it plays in providing some of the most sustainable renewable fuels used in this way. Next time you fill up with diesel think of where the biodiesel you are buying may have come from!
Cutting edge technology at our Liverpool plant enables us to produce 100% high grade biodiesel which meets the standards set by EN14214 EU specifications. This is a standard not achievable by most other UK plants due to the type of technology required.
By measuring our carbon reductions to the standard of ISO 14064 we produce biodiesel that gives more than a 90% carbon savings compared to using regular fossil diesel.
Olleco can produce and supply a host of renewable fuels in addition to our 100% high grade biodiesel.
These include biodiesel blends, Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and Biogas. Providing a variety of fuels enables us to facilitate customer requirements all year round, helping you reduce your carbon footprint and keep down costs.
From experience, we’ve found CHP can be a frustrating process due to the complexity that’s involved with putting a whole package together in a way that fuel supply is guaranteed, technology is fit for purpose and government legislation is understood and complied with.
We help customers cut through the maze of complexity and provide a complete CHP bio liquid solution created from our bespoke design CHP units. Our CHP teams support our customers through site assessments and always being available to advise.
