Lexington, Kentucky (LEX 18) —Fry turkey at this Thanksgiving? Lexington residents can recycle used cooking oil free of charge at the Redwood Cooperative School on Friday, November 26th, from 10am to 2pm.
Cooking oil should not be drained into a sink, as it can clog pipes in both home and city sewers.
With Gobble Grease Toss, Lexington residents can bypass hundreds of gallons of cooking oil. This is a free event for all residents of Fayette County (please refrain from doing business).
If you want to participate, put cooking oil in a disposable container with a lid on the trunk. Stay in the car and be ready to open the boot lid when you arrive. Volunteers will remove the oil on your behalf.
The collected cooking oil will be used for biofuel research through a community partnership with the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (UK CAER), and Kelly Green Biofuel will recycle the remaining cooking oil.
If you can’t go to the Gobble Grease Toss, you can dispose of it properly by refrigerating the cooking oil and putting it in a green garbage cart.
