[ARCHIVED] Cooking oil from Thanksgiving meal prep can be recycled

thanksgiving (1)

Fats, oils and grease (FOG) poured down drains create a huge problem for sewer pipes. FOG can create massive clogs that cause sewer backups and overflows resulting in costly repairs. 

 The city has made proper disposal of FOG easy by installing 55-gallon receptacles at these locations: 

  • Cherry Community Center, 925 George W. Engram Blvd. 
  • Daytona Stadium, 3917 LPGA Blvd. 
  • Florida Tennis Center, 1 Deuce Court 
  • Schnebly Recreation Center, 1101 N. Atlantic Ave. 

The outdoor receptacles are available 24 hours a day with the exception of the one at Daytona Stadium, which is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Cooking oil should be free of water, soap suds and food scraps and should be transported in a clean, non-breakable, leak-proof container with a tight lid. Collected cooking oil will be recycled and processed for use in many products such as livestock feed, soaps biofuels and fertilizer.
