Recycle liquid cooking oil at a free drop-off recycling station.
Solid cooking grease and fats belong in the garbage.
Keep fat, oil, and grease out of drains and compost. They clog pipes, which lead to sewage spills and costly repairs, and interfere with the composting process.
Free residential cooking oil recycling is available. Follow these instructions to use the stations:
Stations are for residents with cooking oil from their home kitchens only. Contact a Food, Oil, and Grease (FOG) Service Provider to manage business oil recycling.
Filter oil at home using a strainer, coffee filter, or cheesecloth. Liquid oil must be free of food particles for recycling.
Oil is poured into a large recycling container on site. Customers must take empty containers home to reuse or throw away. There is no garbage bin in the recycling area.
Learn how to properly and safely reuse fry oil.
Put Fat and Grease in the Garbage. Pour it into a sturdy container. Once the fat or grease has cooled and solidified, put the container in the garbage. Put greasy and oily paper towels in the garbage.
