Used Cooking Oil Recycling for Restaurants

Ottawa’s Cleanest Waste Cooking Oil Grease Pickup and Recycling Solution for Restaurants!

BREC provides the food services industry with solutions to one of their biggest problem: DISPOSING OF WASTE COOKING OIL AND GREASE. Over the past several years, BREC has developed a collection system that has proven to eliminate or reduces typical problems. This was accomplished by implementing four major improvements compared to historical methods used by our main competitors:

  1. Provide smaller, sealable containers with wider openings.
  2. Remove contents AND entire container during each service call.
  3. Leave freshly cleaned replacement containers with each pick up.
  4. Pick up the waste automatically on a frequent regular schedule.

BREC is the abbreviation of our legal name, Bitroleum Renewable Energy Corp.

BREC is an agricultural waste management company founded in 2008 with head Office in Kanata, Ontario. We are in the business of recycling waste cooking oil so that it can be made into useful products right here in Canada. The waste oil is collected from eating establishments throughout the National Capital Region. We then transport it to our processing plant right here in the Ottawa area, just off the Queensway on Carp Road.

We constructed our business to achieve several goals:

  • Provide better, safer ways for customers to dispose of waste oil
  • Provide the cleanest collection containers in the industry
  • Provide the most dependable oil collection service … ever
  • Recycle every drop of oil collected
  • Keep waste materials out of landfills and sewer systems
  • Explore new ways of generating renewable energy
  • Create local jobs
  • Support other local businesses
BREC pioneered alternative ways for clients to dispose of used cooking oil and grease. Rather than having huge dumpsters that are emptied on demand, we use smaller containers that we automatically pick up on a regular schedule. Unlike our competitors, we remove the containers each time that waste oil is collected. We replace them with freshly cleaned containers. Containers so clean that they can be kept indoors.

This innovation eliminates nearly all of the problems that were formerly being experienced by our clientele. The combination of clean containers, regularly scheduled pickups, and dependable service, accounts for our solid reputation. . As a result, we now proudly provide service to a large discriminating customer base ranging from individual operators to International franchises. We are also under contract to several prestigious property managers including Morguard and 20 VIC. We recently were selected by LEVY RESTAURANTS to service Ottawa’s new sports stadium at TD Place.

We recently expanded our facilities and are now positioned to increase our customer base. No business is too large or too small. Just call us at (613) 963-0265 to discuss your needs. We will explain your options and design a program that is guaranteed to satisfy.
