Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG)

DON'T BE A PAIN IN THE DRAIN!

Please participate in our 2016 Holiday Grease Roundup by dropping off your unwanted grease from November 9 - January 7 at two of our convenient locations:

  • Addison Service Center located at 16801 Westgrove Addison, TX 75001: The self-service container will be located on the east side of the building as shown in the photo below.

  • Whole Foods located at 5100 Belt Line Rd. Unit 1012 Dallas, TX 75254 near the west entrance.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
 
Cool it! Scrape it! Bin it!
 
DO'S
  • Can the grease! Keep an empty metal can and pour oil and grease into the can. Allow grease to cool in the container before throwing it in the trash.
  • Wipe before washing. For greasy pans, pour the grease into a container and use a paper towel to wipe out the remaining grease in the pan prior to washing.
  • Seal the oil. Liquid should be limited to no more than one-half gallon. Mix liquid vegetable oil with an absorbent material such as kitty litter or coffee grounds in a sealable container before throwing it in the trash. 
  • Keep drains clean by pouring 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain followed by 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Wait 10-15 minutes then rinse with hot water.

DONT'S

  • Don't pour fat, oil or grease down drains or garbage disposals.
  • Don't use hot water to rinse off cookware, utensils, dishes or surfaces.
