Residential oil and grease recycling


Metro Public Works and Metro Water Services (news release) will now accept residential fats, oils and greases for proper disposal at the Omohundro Convenience Center (directions to 1019 Omohundro Place) each Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Here are instructions for transporting and disposing of these items:

"Collect the fats, oils and grease waste in a sturdy, sealed container in order to prevent leaks during transport to the Convenience Center for recycling. Open the lid on the recycling bin, pour the cooking oil or grease into the bin and dispose of the container in the dumpster."

Fats, oils, and grease can clog sewer lines and even cause back-ups in nearby homes' sewer lines. They can also result in overflows that pollute the environment with raw sewage (yuck). Please do your part to recycle these materials. If you have questions or need more information, please call Sonia Harvat at (615) 862-4494.
