A reliable, friendly, convenient, collection service


Used vegetable oil collection

We  collect  used  cooking oil  for  recycling  into biodiesel.

As a controlled waste producer you are required by law to arrange for the disposal of your used oil with a licensed and registered carrier. You must also ensure you receive a waste transfer note as a receipt for your disposal. Increasing pressure on Environmental Health enforcement means more fines for non-compliance.

Uptown is a fully licensed waste carrier. We provide you with Waste Transfer Notes so you can show your compliance to the inspectors.

Uptown Oil provides a service that is clean, efficient, environmentally responsible

and customer-friendly.


Don't get caught out using illicit collectors, use the professionals, Uptown.



We cover the whole of London but we visit different areas on different days – so please call us to find out when we're in your area. We can provide  blue  kitchen drums to collect your oil, or we will take away your original container and recycle that too.                                  



We provide all of our customers with a certificate showing their contribution to carbon emissions savings by recycling their waste oil with us.


“It really nice to think our used oil is being used beneficially. I used to have to pay for it to be collected but now Uptown collect it and turn it into something good.” 

Landlady, Duke of York Pub, Southwark

“I used to go to pubs and there’d be tubs lingering out the back because they hadn't been collected on time,  it wasn't good for health and safety. Uptown Oil makes regular, reliable collections and I know that it will be turned into a product that benefits the environment, but most importantly I know it won’t be dumped.”    

Young’s Pub Company

“By using Uptown Oil, we can dispose of our waste whilst helping the community through recycling. Because it's environmentally friendly too, is a great bonus. Previously our oil collection had been very hit and miss - obviously it gives us peace of mind knowing that it is being correctly disposed of and the the inspector is happy."
