Holiday Grease Roundup
Cease the Grease

Description:

Don't pour your holiday grease down the drain—round it up and recycle it for free instead!

Holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, with its fried turkeys, buttery foods, and gravy, can be hard on the diet—and on pipes and sewer systems. When fats, oils, and grease are washed down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes, hardening and building up until they cause clogs and sewer backups. This can cause sewage to overflow into homes, streets, and local waterways. Whether the repairs are in your home or on the street, it can be costly and inconvenient. If the sewer overflows, city crews have to shut down streets, tying up traffic and increasing expenses for both residents and municipalities.

So instead of washing your grease down the drain, participate in the Holiday Grease Roundup and recycle it for free!

The City of Mansfield is joining other cities around the metroplex in this regional grease roundup by offering a self-service drop-off location for used grease and cooking oil at the Environmental Collection Center at 616 S. Wisteria St. The recycling container will be outside the gates of the ECC so you can bring your grease at your own convenience.

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.
