City and County offer post-Thanksgiving
cooking oil collection

Two locations for cooking oil drop off on Monday, December 2

The City of St. Augustine and St. Johns County Utilities have joined together for the third year to collect used cooking oil and grease following the Thanksgiving holiday.

The recycling collection is set for Monday, December 2, from 7:30am until 3:30pm at two recycling drop points:

This opportunity allows residents to properly dispose of large amounts of used cooking oil to be recycled into usable products such as biodiesel fuel. Participants are asked to allow used cooking grease to cool prior to delivering it in a safe container that will not melt or shatter. Also, to help in collecting oil in the future, each participant will receive a free funnel for future recycling efforts.

To hear more about this collection program and the importance of being mindful of what goes down household drains, listen to this edition of The Break Room interview with Glabra Skipp, the city's Environmental Analyst, by clicking here.

An easy way to encourage others to take advantage of this opportunity id to print this handy flyer to inform others of the collection times and places, or post it on your community or church bulletin board.

When cooking oil is improperly disposed of down the drain, it can clog sewer pipes and create environmental and public health hazards. Problems with sewer lines typically increase around the holidays when people are washing a lot of greasy and fatty foods down the drain. The fats, oils and greases build up inside sewer pipes and can cause raw sewage to back up and overflow into homes, businesses and the environment.

But recycling cooking oil need not wait until Thanksgiving, for there are six locations throughout the county where cooking oil may be dropped off anytime:
