Solid & Hazardous Waste Recycling

Renderers and Recyclers of Grease and Vegetable Oil

YELLOW (FRYER) GREASE

The National Renderers Association (NRA)

The NRA is an American Trade Association whose business is to promote the interests of its members. Members of this association are all in the business of rendering (i.e., transforming waste from the meat industry into useable products for animal feeds and technical use). Renderers are even known as the original recyclers. On average, slaughterhouses, packing plants, supermarkets, butcher shops, and restaurants collectively generate at least 40,000 metric tons of animal byproduct each week. Without the rendering industry, byproducts from meat and poultry processing would fill up landfills very quickly and the decomposing waste would contaminate our soil and water with disease-causing microorganisms and vermin. For more information on related subjects and a list of renderers go to their website at http://nationalrenderers.org/
