15th Annual Grease Collection and Recycling Event is Jan. 4

Start the new year off right by taking your leftover holiday grease to the 15th Annual Grease Collection and Recycling Event. Six collection sites will be open to accept fats, oils, and grease stored in containers on Saturday, Jan. 4, 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

The Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department (RWRD) reminds you that these items from your kitchen should never be poured down the drain. They can be recycled into biodiesel, a cleaner-burning fuel.

If you cannot make it to the recycling event, take these items to Pima County’s Agua Nueva Water Reclamation Facility, 2947 W. Calle Agua Nueva, Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-3 p.m. For more information and drop-off locations, call (520) 405-0438.
