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.

Items Accepted

Cooking Oils - vegetable, corn, peanut, olive, soybean, etc.

Fats / Grease - lard, butter, shortening, bacon grease, etc.   

Note: Fats, oils and grease can be mixed in a single container. 

Motor oil, fuels, antifreeze, and chemicals should NOT be mixed with cooking oils.

Six Steps to Recycling Cooking Oils
1. Obtain a one or two gallon plastic container
2. Label the container, "Cooking Oil for Recycling"
3. Pour used cooking oil, fats, and grease into the container and place in a safe place
4. Continue to add the fats, oils, and grease until the container is full
5. When the container is full, bring it into the county's recycling center
6. You may use as many containers as you wish
