Cooking Oil Recycle & Proper Disposal of Grease

CookingOil_Thumb

Village of Bensenville, Public Works Department in partnership with SCARCE is offering its residents a free program to recycle used cooking oil. Recycling cooking oil means less of it being disposed in the drain, which can cause clogs in the sewer lines. Repairing these clogs is costly to the Village and to the residents. The bin for recycling is located at the Public Works Facility, 717 E Jefferson Street (right next to Salt Dome & free mulch bin). This area is under video surveillance. Place your container in the bin. Please no motor oil, bacon/meat grease. Visit https://www.scarce.org/cooking-oil/ for more information about the program. 

The right way to dispose of bacon/meat grease is simple; throw it in your trash can. Follow these steps to avoid pouring hot grease directly in your garbage: Let the oil or grease cool and solidify. Once cool and solid, scrape the grease into a container that can be thrown away.
