Cooking Oil Recycling Program

The Cooking Oil Recycling (COR) Program is a residential recycling program bringing used cooking oil recycling to Asheville and greater Buncombe Co [North Carolina]. Recycling bins are centrally located to allow area residents to easily recycle animal and vegetable oil used after cooking.

Made possible through funding from the Biofuels Center of North Carolina, the Cooking Oil Recycling Program engages multiple, diverse communities across Buncombe County in recycling, reducing waste, and creating clean, local energy. The Cooking Oil Recycling Program is working to support the North Carolina Strategic Plan for Biofuels Leadership goal that by 2017, 10% of liquid fuels sold in our state will come from biofuels grown and produced in NC.
