Don't be a turkey - recycle your holiday cooking grease!
Whether you stuff, roast or deep-fry the bird, holiday cooking can create a significant amount of grease. You can help put that grease to good use – and keep it from ruining your pipes – by having it recycled. The City of Tempe offers for convenient drop off locations where residents can recycle turkey grease and other used cooking oil.
Tempe residents can drop off used grease beginning late November through early January at four Tempe locations:
Household Products Collection Center – 1320 E. University Dr.
Fire Station #2 – 3025 S. Hardy Dr.
Fire Station #3 – 5440 S. McClintock Dr.
Fire Station #4 – 300 E. Elliot Rd.
Residents can pour fryer and cooking grease directly into barrels at the collection locations or simply place containers of grease on a spill-proof surface next to the barrels.
