Countryside Sanitation Service LLC is a locally and family owned garbage collection company you can trust in Pitt County, NC. We provide both commercial and residential sanitation services as well as roll-off containers in Greenville (metro, commercial only), Greene County, Lenoir County, and Pitt County, NC.
While most anything can be disposed of in your trash can, cooking and motor oil must be handled differently. We are happy to collect these items for you. However, we do ask that you place these items in containers outside of your trash can.
So, why exactly can’t oil be thrown away with the rest of your trash? For one, oil is a liquid and can easily leak from your trash bag should it get a tear. Oil is also a valuable resource that can be reused and recycled. For that reason, we don’t want it to end up in the landfill. By separating your oil from the rest of the trash, you allow us to take your oil to areas where it can be handled properly.
Aside from not putting oil in your trash can, you also don’t want to pour oil down your drain. This oil can build up and clog your local sewage system, causing a big mess for you and your neighbors.
To reduce the amount of cooking oil that you can use, we advise that you reuse your cooking oil several times. Simply filter the used oil to remove food debris and then use it again. Another way to reuse cooking oil is to turn it into compost for your garden.
As far as motor oil goes, if you have your oil changed at a professional garage, they will properly dispose of the oil for you. However, if you change your oil yourself, be sure to store it in a container and set it aside for us to collect.
