Assemblymember Holden Aims to Stop Kitchen Grease Thieves

Thursday, February 13, 2014

(Sacramento) – Stealing used kitchen grease from restaurants has become a big business, costing restaurant owners thousands of dollars. Rendering plants and bio-fuel companies buy the used grease. California State Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) authored Assembly Bill 1566 to try to put a dent in the black market side of this enterprise. If passed, AB 1566 would tighten regulations regarding who can sell the used grease and stiffen penalties for buyers who do not keep track of who is selling the grimy product.
