Holiday Grease Roundup

Posted on December 13, 2022

The City of Alvord has joined the Holiday Grease Roundup and citizens are encouraged to drop off their used cooking oils at the designated drop off location: 915 West Bypass 287.
Holiday foods 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 in 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.
Instead of washing your grease down the drain, participate in the Holiday Grease Roundup and recycle it for free!
The collected cooking oil and grease will be recycled into biodiesel and biogas, which reduces landfill waste and produces an alternative fuel that is clean green.
