Start off the new year right by taking your leftover holiday grease to Tucson’s 16th annual Grease Collection and Recycling Event. Six collection sites will be open to accept fats, oils, and grease stored in containers on Saturday, Jan. 9, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department (RWRD) reminds you that these items from your kitchen should never be poured down the drain. They can be recycled into biodiesel, a cleaner-burning fuel.
For more information and hours visit the Protect Our Pipes webpage. To ensure the volunteers and community participants remain safe during the pandemic, you’re asked to wear a mask when dropping off grease containers. You can also take grease, fats, and oils to the City of Tucson’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) program, visit https://www.tucsonaz.gov/es/household-hazardous-waste?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery for more information on HHW locations and hours.
