Recycle Your Cooking Oil At The Gobble Grease Toss

LEXINGTON, Ky.-- Are you frying your Thanksgiving turkey this year? Recycle your used cooking oil for free at the Gobble Grease Toss.

The Gobble Grease Toss will be held Nov. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Redwood Cooperative School, 166 Crestwood Dr.

The cooking oil collected at the event will be recycled into biofuel by Kelley Green Biofuel and used for research at the University of Kentucky’s Center for Applied Energy Research.

“Redwood is excited to host the annual Gobble Grease Toss and provide a way for our community to recycle another common household item,” said Sarah Cummins, Director of Redwood Cooperative School. “We embrace this opportunity to be environmental stewards and support renewable energy science."

Cooking oil should never be poured down sink drains. It can solidify and clog pipes in your home. Oil and grease can even clog the city sewer lines, leading to sanitary sewer overflows – the discharge of untreated sewage into streets, yards and creeks.

The Gobble Grease Toss is free for all Fayette County residents (no businesses, please). Citizens should bring the oil in a disposable container with a lid.

Cooking oil also can be disposed by hardening it in the refrigerator and placing it in your green trash cart.

For more information on the Gobble Grease Toss, call LexCall at 311 or 425-2255 or visit LexingtonKY.gov/LiveGreen.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — A youth basketball team had a reason to celebrate over the weekend, but not because they won their game.
