Cooking Oil Collection – Thanksgiving 2017

November 25, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CST

| Free

As part of an annual, one-day event, select towns will be collecting used, liquid cooking oil (no bacon grease or other solid animal fats) to be recycled into biodiesel. This is a one-day event with the goal to make it easier for residents to properly dispose of their leftover or expired liquid cooking oil with temporary drop-off locations.

DuPage County also has eight  permanent collection locations for recycling cooking oil year-round.

All cooking oil must be dropped off in a sealed container. Containers will not be returned.
No bacon grease or other solid animal fats will be accepted. Vegetable-based oil only.

To learn more about cooking oil recycling, read our blog post.
