Cooking Oil Recycling Effort (C.O.R.E.)

Fats, Oils, and Grease create major problems in our community sewer systems. Save our sewers! Used cooking oil and grease should always be disposed of properly. Never pour any type of oil down a drain or toilet! Even if the oil is poured slowly into a drain followed with hot water, this will eventually cause problems with your home's plumbing and the sewer system as a whole. Join the C.O.R.E. Any used cooking oil or grease including vegetable oil, fish oil, bacon grease, chicken fat, and pork fat can be recycled. And, all recycled cooking oil will be used to create Biofuel. Cooking oil recycling reduces sanitary sewer problems and is good for the environment.


Thank you to all of our customers that have joined the C.O.R.E.! Your cooking oil recycling efforts have been outstanding. Since the beginning of this program, you have recycled about 1,391 gallons of used cooking oil. Last month, there were nearly 100 jugs (70+ gallons) of cooking oil returned to the collection sites. H2GO has transferred more than 1,390 gallons of used cooking oil to Mahoney Environmental in Wilmington for the production of bio-diesel. And, our field crews have noticed a decrease of grease build-up in some of our pump stations. Keep up the cooking oil recycling efforts! You are making a difference!
