The Fox Valley Grease Boys

About Hopkins Grease Co.

Our family, serving your family, since 1947

WE ARE THE “OGB” – Original Grease Boys

We are environmentally aware recyclers and have been for over 50 years. Our experience and expertise in grease allows us to give you the options you need to stay compliant with regulations.

Hopkins Grease RecycleOur family has been in the waste cooking oil recycling business since 1947. At the time, we would collect waste cooking oil in 100 pound cans from local diners and kitchens. We eventually had a fleet of 3 heavy duty pick up trucks that collected waste grease in the greater fox valley area and Chicagoland. Then it was processed and sold for many uses. Over the years, the trucks and the collection process has changed, but what remains constant is our pride in what we do and our commitment to providing the best service in the industry to our valued customers.

Today we collect used cooking oil and clean grease traps at restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and large food manufacturing plants. The collected grease is processed and recycled into yellow grease which is used in valuable products such as plastics, soaps, livestock feed and alternative fuel. During the past 15-years we have added bulk collection grease services, and can handle all types of containers for grease collection. We have also added Grease Trap Maintenance services, and power rodding & water jetting services. A full fleet of vehicles and valued employees provide our specialized recycling services. We operate at our facility in Lake in the Hills, IL.

You can rely on us for quick, clean and professional collection and disposal of your used cooking oil and grease. Whether you are a national chain or family-owned restaurant, we will customize a service plan that meets your business needs. We continually strive for “a greener tomorrow” by using cutting-edge technology and creating environmentally-friendly initiatives.
