Thanksgiving Recycling Tip

posted 11/15/2018

Frying a Turkey for Thanksgiving?

If you plan to fry a turkey this Thanksgiving, plan also to recycle the used cooking oil at our Metro Hazardous Waste Drop-Off. We’ve partnered with Mid-Iowa Renewables, which recycles cooking oil from local businesses. Because of our relationship withthis company, we are able provide this free recycling outlet to residents, as well.

Acceptance Guidelines

You can recycle canola, peanut and vegetable oil year-round. Grease is not accepted. The oil collected is reused to support the local biodiesel industry.

Drop-Off Hours & Location

Tuesday to Friday: 1 to 5 p.m.
Saturdays: 8 a.m. to Noon (first and third Saturdays of the month)
Metro Hazardous Waste Drop-Off (just a half-mile north of I-80 at the Adventureland exit)
