Residential Cooking Oil Recycling

Pasco County collects on average 2000 gallons of used cooking oil annually. Keeping fats and oils out of the collection system is critical.

Never pour fats, oils or grease down the sink or toilet. Grease can clog pipes. Fats, grease and oil are among the primary causes of residential pipeline and sewer main clogs, resulting in sewer spills and overflows.
