City Spotlight Recycle fat, oil, and grease
Too often, all that used cooking fat, oil, and grease finds its way into the kitchen sink. From there it goes down the drain where it cools, hardens, and causes headaches for homeowners and paydays for plumbers. But there's a better option!
Instead of pouring that gunk down the drain, transfer it into a clean, dry container with a secure lid. Use a coffee filter and paper towel to remove the solid bits and residue. Then take the container to the City's compost facility and we'll have it turned into eco-friendly biodiesel fuel!
While the Compost Facility is closed on Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving this week, it is open on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. So stop by for a little post-Thanksgiving recycling by heading out to the facility's drop off site over at 7201 E. Highway 90, by mile post 324.
The Compost Facility is typically open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and can be reached at (520) 452-7072.
