Carrollton Offers Free Cooking Oil Disposal for Residents

Carrollton, Texas – The 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 26 or Tuesday, November 27 to properly dispose of grease and cooking oil for free.

Often times, 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 less plumbing issues in homes and no sewage overflows into parks, yards, or streets.

This is the 11th year Carrollton has coordinated Cease the Grease and the first 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 as well as fun, educational activities for the kids.
