Green Tips for Dentists
The San Francisco Green Business Program recognizes dental practices that meet our program standards and go beyond compliance to properly dispose of their hazardous waste. While you review our green dental standards, please visit Environmentally Responsible Dentistry Products and Practices offered by SF Environment for tips on how to expedite your Green Business recognition and factsheets to learn how to store, label and dispose of dental office waste.
Green Tips for Restaurants
SFGreasecycle is a citywide effort to create a waste vegetable oil recovery program that diverts Fats, Oils & Grease out of the trash, away from the sewer and eventually into City fleet. To make this happen, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission has established a Commercial Waste Oil Transfer Station-located at the Southeast Waste Water Treatment plant-to handle all material from commercial establishments and residents in the City. This waste oil will be processed and sold to the biofuel industry, turning trash into fuel. The SFPUC has a new, restaurant-friendly, FREE biofuel pickup program to keep fats, oils and grease out of San Francisco sewers.
