Carrollton Offers Free Cooking Oil Disposal for Residents

Post Date:11/10/2021 12:23 PM

Cease-The-Grease-imageThe City of Carrollton will hold a Cease the Grease event for residents to properly dispose of cooking oil, meat fats, lard, shortening, and grease often left over from large holiday meals.

Stop by the City of Carrollton Central Service Center (2711 Nimitz Lane) from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, November 29 or Tuesday, November 30 to properly dispose of grease and cooking oil for free.

Often, plumbing problems can result from pouring oils and food scraps down household drains. Pipe blockage can be prevented by scraping the excess from plates, pots, pans, utensils, and grills into a can or the trash. The garbage disposal is no place for grease. Proper disposal of grease will keep it out of the sewer system and prevent damage to sewage and drain pipes as well as the environment.

If everyone takes preventative measures, there will be fewer plumbing issues in homes and less sewage overflows into parks, yards, or streets.

This is the 14th year Carrollton has coordinated Cease the Grease and the fourth year to be sponsored by Metro Grease Service.

For details on the event, contact Carrollton Water Utilities at 972-466-3425. Visit cityofcarrollton.com/FatFreeSewers for more information.

Additional grease recycling opportunities between Monday, November 22 and Monday, January 10 can be found at defendyourdrainsnorthtexas.com/holiday-grease-roundup and defendyourdrainsnorthtexas.com/cease-the-grease
