Locations to Recycle Cooking Oils


Did you know that all of your cooking oil can be recycled and turned into biodiesel? It is always better to recycle your cooking oil and grease then put it into your sink. Cooking oils and grease can cause your sewers to backup which could damage your home or threaten the environment. If you can't recycle your cooking oil then you should check with your local sanitary sewer agencies to dispose of your oil/grease properly. Here is a list of locations in San Mateo County that will recycle your cooking oils.
