A grease recycling program is available to city residents, making it easy to properly dispose of household and cooking fats, oils and greases that can cause serious, costly sewer problems by creating blockages in pipes.
Participation in the grease recycling program is free and easy. Here's how:
- Place leftover cooking greases, frying oils, meat drippings and bacon fats in a non-recyclable container, such as a coffee can or glass jar.
- Bring the grease to the city's Solid Waste/Recycling drop-off center at 1701 N. Hercules Ave.
- Pour the contents of your container into the large barrel that is on-site. The center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Grease recycling is available on a drop-off basis only. Due to limited resources, there currently is no curbside pick-up of oils for recycling.
