Holiday Cooking Oil Recycling Program Returns | Environment
As most everyone gets ready to cook a big feast for the Thanksgiving holiday, the Clark County Water Reclamation District has announced the return of its holiday cooking oil recycling program.
The water district is partnering with the Springs Preserve to collect used oil and keep it out of the drain. The idea is to reduce the amount of sewer blockages caused by fat, oil, grease and grit dumped down the drain.
Once the oil is turned in, it is recycled into biofuel for trucks, buses and vehicles.
The Springs Preserve will collect grease and oil from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29 through Monday, Dec. 2 and Thursday, Dec. 26 through Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014.
The collection site will be in the south ticketing parking lot. The cooking oil should be poured back into the original container and sealed before being brought to the Springs Preserve.
If you do not have enough oil to be recycled, keep it out of the drain by putting it into a can and throwing it into the garbage.
