Don’t Pour Your Holiday Cooking Grease Down The Drain

November 20, 2020

Round It Up And Recycle It For Free Instead!

Protect your homes, businesses, and the environment this holiday season from the effects of sewer backups caused by clogged pipes. One way you can help to prevent these backups is by spreading the word about the Annual North Texas Holiday Grease Roundup!

The North Texas Municipal Water District is teaming up with the Wastewater And Treatment Education Roundtable, North Central Texas Council of Governments, and American BioSource to help protect sewer systems and the environment by providing additional drop-off locations or highlighting their existing services.

The collected cooking oil and grease will be recycled into biodiesel or biogas, which reduces landfill waste and produces an alternative fuel that is clean and green.

The regional collection will be held from Monday, November 23, 2020 through Monday, January 04, 2021. Residents from all over the Metroplex will be able to safely dispose of their used cooking oil and grease for free.

This is a used cooking oil and grease collection only; used motor oil should be taken to a household hazardous waste location or an automotive supply store.
